  Monumento dos Descobrimentos
by tini58de

The monument of the discoveries was built in 1960 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the birth of Henry the Navigator.

As far as I read, it is even possible to enter the monument Tue. - Sun.: 09.30 - 18.45 and to have a good view from there to the Monastery of Jeronimo and the Tower of Belem.
