Overview

Bartolomeu de Gusmão was an inventor. Born in Brazil in 1685, he was a priest who was known more for his admirable inventions than his sermons. He is unanimously considered to be one of the fathers of aviation due to his passarola, a flying structure that is the predecessor to the airship. The statue of Gusmão, built in 1989 by Joaquim Martins Correia, is located near the airport.
