Mossel Bay shines in Europe

Interesting article on the promotion of Mossel Bay, South Africa at the last ITB in Berlin!

Mossel Bay shines in Europe

Many people do not know about the +500 year-old links between Mossel Bay and Portugal!

Mossel Bay was one of the main layover points on the Southern Tip of Africa for the Portuguese Voyages of Discovery. The Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex is one of the best historical displays about the Portuguese Voyages of Discovery I know, even better than many here in Portugal!

I had a chance to visit this Museum in 2007 and still do not understand why a similiar museum has not been built in Lisbon. Sines or Lagos, Algarve, Portugal to celebrate these incredible feats of navigation!
