Five hundred years of development of naval architecture. The vessel on the left is a (presumably full size) replica of the Santa María de la Inmaculada Concepción which was the largest (!) of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his first voyage across the Atlantic in 1492. It does half-day trips along the south coast

The upper part is a copy of this image which is linked to from this page about RMS Titanic. It has been scaled to match the Independence in size. Bear in mind that the red bits of the Titanic represent its 10.5 metre, below the water line draught. With a draught of only 8.8 metres and that towering superstructure the Independence seems awfully top-heavy.

Cabo Girão
One evening we heard ecclesiastical music being broadcast over loudspeakers and we saw candles moving through the woods recalling the Ave Maria sequence in Disney's Fantasia. Roger followed the sound and it led him to the summit of the Cabo Girão promontory where stands the Capela de Nossa Senhora de Fátima (babel fish version). It was crowded with people taking part in a Peregrinação ao Santuário de Nossa Senhora de Fátima (babel fish on the pilgrimage and local copy).
