Padrão dos Descobrimentos - Monument to the Discoveries, Lisbon: 41 reviews and 93 photos
This monument was erected in 1960 to commemorate the centuries of exploration since the death of Henry the Navigator. The area before the monument is a giant map of the world showing the routes the Portugese sailed. Unfortunately, there was no way to get a good picture.
You can take a short elevator ride to the top where there is an observation deck. There is a charge for this but it is free if you have the Lisboa card. Even though you are not very high up, the view is amazing.
Address: Av. Brasília, 1400-038 Lisboa
Directions: The monument is a five minute walk from the train station, about a quarter of a mile before the Tower of Belem.
