Prince Henry's School of Navigation

Driving up to the fortress/visitor center

Cape San Vicente (Promontorium Sacrum, the Romans called it)
in the distance...even wilder wind and wave

I don't think they bought this one at Pier 1

This item does remain from the school, although no one knows
what it was for: wind compass? sun dial?

An interesting and apparently aged device up on the battlements

Not much of it remains anymore...a much newer castle, chapels, battlements, but it is still an interesting place to visit.
