Torre de Belém & Padrão dos Descobrimentos
This fine piece of architecture used to be located in the middle of the Tejo river, but for some reason the river changed its directions and now the tower marks one of its riverbanks. The tower was completed in 1521 and now is as white as ever after some renovations ? a marevellous sight at full moon. The picture shows the view from the Torre towards the city with the Discoverer Monument and the Tejo bridge. A picture of the Torre itself is in the Intro to the page.
