    Porto Portugal - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Porto is the second largest city in Portugal and is the city from which the country derived its name. At its centre is the Praca Da Liberdade a large square that is guarded by a statue of King Dom Pedro the Fourth. The Torre Dos Clerigos is the symbol of Porto and in the middle of the 18th century was built on a rock at the city's highest point. Of particular interest is the remarkable external wall toward the east that is decorated with a huge example of the Portuguese art form known as `azuelejos'. The tidal and deep-cut river valley of the Douro is spanned by four bridges of which the most impressive is the iron-built, Ponte Dom Louis. The Frenchman, Gustave Eiffel, constructed this gigantic twin level bridge that connects Porto with its sister town, Vila Nova De Gaia. Porto is a cultural capital of Europe whose glorious spirit of the past has managed to survive the centuries.

    Order of Christ (Convento De Christo Tomar) Portugal - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Proudly, powerfully and surrounded by fortified walls, the Convento De Christo Monastery is situated above the town of Tomar, north of Lisbon. Beyond the near impenetrable fortification was the Portuguese branch of the Order of the Knights Templar. The layout and decoration of the Convento De Christo and its church contain the numerous architectural styles and works of art of various periods. The Knights of Christ contributed to the final expulsion of the Moors, the liberation of the country and the creation of the Portuguese monarchy. The stabilization of power soon led to the rise of Portugal as an influential nation of seafarers and explorers. In the 15th century the Knights of Christ played a significant role in the country's development. The convent's circular building, the Charola, was decorated with the jewellery of the 16th century. It was originally inspired by Romanic-Byzantine style that dates back to the days of the Knights Templar. The Convento De Christo, even to the present day, is full of both historical and religious appeal.

    Monastery of Batalha (Mosterio De Batalha) Portugal - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The Batalha Monastery is one of Portugal's masterpieces of Late Gothic architecture and also one of its most important monuments. The monastery was built in thanksgiving to the Virgin Mary who answered the people's prayers during the decisive battle of Aljubarrota and in keeping with the political and historical significance of this victory, the architecture of the monastery is quite magnificent and full of artistic flair. Its construction took a hundred and fifty years. Its architecture was designed to be magnificently regal and majestic and it contains several royal tombs. Motifs of royal battledress partly decorate the interior of the church, a reminder of its former builder and patron, Joao The First, and through beautiful multi-coloured glass windows, rays of light illuminate a multitude of rich treasures. Today, the numerous Gothic ornaments and beautiful glass windows of more recent times provide the monastery with a dignified show of colour. However, little remains of the Holy Dominican Order that worshipped within its walls for more than four centuries. This exquisite monastery is quite rightly considered to be one of the most influential in the development of Portuguese architecture.

    Monastery of Alcobaca (Mosteiro De Alcobaca) Portugal - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The Mosteiro De Alcoba?a is a massive, medieval monastery in Alcoba?a and one of the most important historical monuments in Portugal. The creative influence of the monastery's fraternity is still evident and its interior is one of the most beautiful examples of Gothic Cistercian design. King Afonso Henriques promised the construction of the Cistercian monastery in 1147 following a decisive victory over the Moors. He kept his word and six years after his military triumph the first construction work on the monastery began. The majority of the buildings were completed in 1222 although the monastery's kitchen and its impressive chimney were added in the 18th century. The Cloister was built in the 15th century at the time of King Dinis. Due to the vow of silence this building was known as the silent cloister. When the religious fraternities were disbanded in 1834 the Mosteiro De Alcoba?a was abandoned by its monks but its treasures and much of its age old splendour have been preserved to the present day.

    Madeira Portugal - Travel Video.
    DVD. Cities of the World. 60 Minutes. Madeira - a part of Portugal - is an island near the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. The island has a mild climate, and its main assets are its legendary flowers and natural beauties. Madeira's name is strongly connected with the wine and a handcraft of the same name. In the center of the Wine Company we can taste and buy this fantastic drink as well as take a look at its history. In the mountain village of Monte lies the last Habsburg royalty, and this is the place where the famous toboggan sleds can be seen. Camacha is famous for its basket makers and Moniz for its cave spa. In Santana the tourists can see many thatched houses so characteristic of the island. The 1800 meters high mountains and the lush flora offer recreation for the hikers, mountaineers, parachutists and bikers. Beside the levadas - watering canals - we can walk through Madeira among the banana plantations, vineyards, sugar cane fields, eucalyptus and laurel forests. The landscape is full of volcanic stones, basalt rocks, deep gorges, blacksanded beaches and mountaintops hardly visible in the mist. In the capital, Funchal, which is famous for its busy cultural life, we can take a look at the copy of the ship of Columbus.
