Museum near the chapel with exhibits from the time of Henry the Navigator. The banner in front of the museum says: "After the passage of (Cape) Bojador, the world has no longer been the same" , reflecting the first surrounding of this point of the African western coast by Gil Eanes in 1434, that started the Age of the Portugese Discoveries.
