Antipodes


Today the City Daily Photo theme is: National Day (2) - Waitangi Day (NZ).
Portugal is antipodal to New Zealand, hence the link to the theme.

The photo shows a detail of the world map at the center of a huge compass rose mosaic next to the Monument to the Discoveries. Check this post and click on the photo to enlarge it.
