Shipbuilders, seafarers, fisherman, politician, the shore line to the Atlantic Ocean. Picture says more than a thousand words. And these pictures are on a wall. Beside the wall you can also take a stroll along the beach. Enjoyable!

These tiles are very much worth seeing. The Portuguese are proud of their relationship with the ocean and fishing tradition and this is so very much representative of that history and pride.
