"The Mosteiro dos Jeronimos - Belem" Torre de Belém - Tower of Belém Tip by calcaf38

Torre de Belém - Tower of Belém, Lisbon: 220 reviews and 440 photos

 
 

This huge monastery is the core of the Belem neighborhood. It dates from the same era as the great Inca monuments, and it was built to celebrate the great discoveries of Vasco de Gamma. The cloister is particularly attractive, with delicate and evocative stone work. The church itself is huge, but not all that remarkable (maybe the light would have been gentler at another time of the day).
