The exhibition at the Casa do Brasil, which will occupy the first floor of the building on a permanent basis, seeks to revisit the issue of the place of Santarém in the context of overseas expansion and diaspora, with a special focus, naturally, on Brazil, invoked through cartography, iconography and ethnographic objects. Pedro Álvares Cabral, the patron of this 'ground', will have a brief biographical approach, clarifying his connection, in life and death, to the town of Santarém. Thus, we seek to clarify the controversial issue of the "house of Cabral", framing it properly in the urban fabric and presenting some of the archaeological remains from the excavation carried out during the renovation of the space in 1999. With the same objective, the importance of the discoverer's grave in Graça Church will be highlighted, outlining a brief history of the various phases through which its chapel has passed.
