  • Learnt about him in school Now I saw him He was hidden next to a castle Can see him from afar He should be in the main square Was nice to see Awesome  more »
  • Sines was the birthplace of the great Navigator who discovered the route to India and could not miss a monument dedicated to Vasco da Gama. The statue is located near the West Tower of the Castle, facing the sea and is fairly conventional but well worth a look given the importance of the character. In sines you can even see the House.

  • Monument to the great pioneer in the town of Sines, where he was born. He stands proudly looking towards the sea. Powerful monument! Good emphasizes personality scale Conquistador and its importance in the eyes of their fellow countrymen.

  • It was a warm afternoon November with the sun still above the horizon. We made a tour around the town and found this castle and statue of Vasco da Gama. I've heard about him wayback school life but forgot the details. Anyway, the place was nice- a typical summer destination which is visited less by people during year end months. I can say that this place would have been great if the castle was open. We only saw the statue and its walls from the outside. I had so much fun with the statue by the way.
  • Historical Site with great views from the castle. Great beach on a beautiful bay with all the amenities
  • Not very touristy place but great to surf and teach kids how to swim. Only 2 restaurants available so bring supplies with you!!
  • What a lovely beach and promenade. Visited in early November. Cracking weather and not at all crowded. You could still swim on the sea too!
  • It is a very nice and clean beach. Well maintained. I have been there after high season in September
