    There are numerous narrow octagonal pillars, all intricately carved which seem to reach forever up to the amazing vaulted ceiling.

    You can go up inside the Monument to the Discoveries via a lift to a sixth floor where you can then take the stairs to the top to get great views over the Belem area and the Tagus River.

    Tower of Belem

    by orlikins Updated Nov 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Torre de Belem

    A historical look-out post over the Tagus estuary, just down from the Monument of the Discoverers. It was closed when I was there, so I can't tell you much more about it.

    Belem in Portugal

    I simply take the No. 15 tram from Baixa to Belem. You can visit the museum at the monument or walk along the river side.

    Belem in Portugal

    The little tower, which was built by Francisco Arruda between 1515 and 1521, delights the eye with its setting on the edge of the Tejo.

    The Monastery of St. Jeronimo
    The most beautiful Monastery I've ever seen. It's built in an Pseudoarabic style!

    Inside the monastery's church, check out the chapels, soaring vaulting, paintings, and sculptures. Don't forget the sarcophagi!

    Despite most visitors focus in Vasco da Gama and Camões tombs, many other may be seen in Jeronimos, with evidence to those of king Manuel and his wife.
