Prince Henry exhibition

Fifteen international artists will be displaying their interpretations of Henry the Navigator in an exhibition at the Galeria Santo António in Monchique.

The exhibition is due to open on February 13 at 11am and will run until April 6.

Henry the Navigator, known as Infante Dom Henrique, is famed for his early European exploration and trade with other continents and is considered to be a very important figure during the times of the Portuguese Empire.

His development of the caravel enabled the Portuguese to be able to travel widely, while his map-making and explorations are widely documented.
