“We Need A Name: Gil Eanes”


“We Need A Name: Gil Eanes”

David Loira

A walk through a city, its past, its present and its future… A walk through issues such as time, place, concept of being, naming, the unknown, cartography, travel, tourism, exploring, conquering…

Represent Portugal to me as a beautiful and sweet peasant girl who, with her back turned to Europe, seated on the seashore, with barefoot feet on the edge where the foam of the twin waves bathes them, her elbows on her knees and the face between her hands, watch as the sun sets in the endless waters. Because for Portugal the sun is never born: it always dies in the sea that was the theater of its feats and cradle and tomb of its glories. ”

(Miguel de Unamuno)
