Torre de Belém - Tower of Belém, Lisbon: 224 reviews and 444 photos


This splendid monument is one of the most recognizable symbols of the country, as Eiffel Tower is to France, Tower Bridge to England or St Basil to Russia.

It was built during the reign of Manuel I and heralded the peculiar style of Portuguese baroque, called Manuelene. You can explore the rooms inside, see some ancient cannons and get a view of the Atlantic through the battlements.
