The island of Porto Santo hosts a historical recreation in honour of the famous merchant and navigator
Christopher Columbus, who lived on this island and married the daughter of the rst Captain Donnee,
Bartolomeu Perestrelo.
This medieval festival includes an extensive program comprised by a wide range of musical and theatre
shows, as well as exhibitions and parades evoking the age of the Portuguese Discoveries.
