Forte das Berlengas

Forte das Berlengas
The islands are referred to in Ptolemy's Geography as Λονδοβρίς (Londobris). Much later it was referred to as the island of Saturno by Roman geographers. In 1513, with the support of Queen Leonor, monks from the Order of São Jerónimo established a settlement on the island to offer assistance to navigation and victims of frequent shipwrecks. Please see Wikipedia.org/Berlengas

Espertos esses cabr….zinhos dos monks, e preguiçosos: bastava mandar uma linha com anzol pela janela e pescavam o almoço quase sem sair da cama! Sortudos. Só que não sabiam o que é nadar com peixinhos à volta!
