Join us to celebrate some 500 years of Portuguese maritime skill, daring exploration, and mutual cultural influence with China as exemplified by magnificent photographs of the N.R.P. Sagres, which has roamed the world’s oceans as the Portugues Navy’s school ship, and of the historic architecture of the port city of Macau, the first enduring point of contact between China and the West.
