During the reign of King Dom Manuel I, from Lisbon one could travel to Brazil, to China or the Moluccas islands. How did navigators do it? By looking at the sky or looking at the sea?

In this workshop visit, families are invited to travel like in the 16th century by constructing a quadrant to reach Lisbon to discover the profound architectural, social and cultural transformations affecting the city at that time.
