The Padrao dos Descobrimentos was completed as a model for the Portuguese world exhibition and erected on the bank of the Tagus in its current form in 1960. The official reason for the opening of the monument was the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry the Navigator, who gained great honor in the "Estavo Novo". The monument clearly shows above all else the artificial revival of the most important epoch of Portugal's national history under the Salazar dictatorship.
