Portugal dos Pequenitos

Christoph Kalter


This photo shows the entrance to Little Peoples’ Portugal, an educational park for children. Inaugurated in 1940, the park was designed to introduce young children to the ‘Portuguese World,’ at the time an empire stretching from southwestern Europe and Portugal’s Atlantic islands to Southern Africa and East Asia. Miniature versions of famous monuments, characteristic houses, and typical objects from both metropole and colonies were on display for the children.
