We’ll leave the sunny city of Lisbon through the majestic bridge April 25 that separates the banks of the extensive Tagus River before entering into the Atlantic Ocean, to get to the city of Almada which is much more than a “balcony” with privileged view of Lisbon we find the imposing statue of Christ the King.
The Christ the King Statue idea was born in 1934 when during a visit of the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon to Brazil, D. Manuel Gonçalves Cerejeira that when passing through Rio de Janeiro saw the imposing image of Christ the Redeemer of Corcovado soon in his heart was born the desire to build similar work in front of Lisbon.
In 1936 the idea of building a monument to Christ the King was sent to the “Apostleship of Prayer” that welcomed the idea enthusiastically.
To be National Monument needed approval and cooperation of all the Portuguese Bishops, such awareness is achieved Bishops was officially proclaimed in Lenten Pastoral Collective 1937.
We continue our tour to the city of Costa da Caparica where we highlight a length of over 13 km of beaches enriched by natural reserves Arriba Costa da Caparica and the Forest of Fears, this immense expanse of sand that starts in the village and ends only at Source tile with the cliffs and dunes where you can watch the most beautiful setting of the sun in the Lisbon region.
