"Padrao dos Discobrimentos." Belém sightseeing Tip by Maurizioago

Belém sightseeing, Lisbon: 22 reviews and 26 photos


Favorite thing: In Belèm; along the Tajo river, you can see this 52 m. high monument.

It was built in 1960 in memory of the 500th anniversary of Prince Hernry's death.

Several famous people are carved on this huge caravel shaped sculpture; Henry The Navigator, Vasco Da Gama and many others.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
