    Awesome visit

    It was an eye opener to see the size of ships 15th century explorers were using to sail through the rough seas and such long trips. The place is clean with Covid-19 protocols enforced on site.

    Bartholomeu Diaz Museum - A visit into the seafarers lives

    It is nice and quiet and you have time to reflect on what was before us. The ship is the main attraction and for visitors to walk through is a very good experience.
