Ria Formosa’s Hangares to be reactivated as a Marines training base

The unveiling of a monument marking 100 years since WWI and the role played by those in the now sleepy settlement of Hangares on the Ria Formosa island of Culatra, went ahead on August 30th but with an unexpected and not universally welcomed announcement.

The event aimed to ‘value the collective memory and celebrate the achievement of peace and democracy,’ but ended up being used by the Navy to announce the conversion of the derelict military area into a fully equipped training base for Portugal’s Marines.
