    Delicate stonework on this attractive building that was once used to imprison political enemies in the waterlogged dungeons.

    When you visit Belem you MUST also visit the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos!
    The picture shows a detail of the Monasteiroi dos Jeronimos.
    Can you imagine that all this is made out of stone?

    Also in Belem is the Padrao dos Descobrimentos, a monument where an elevator brings you up (free for people with a Lisbon card) and you have a great view over Belem and the Rio Tejo .

    Monumento dos Descobrimentos

    Very close to the Torre de Belem is the Monumento dos Descobrimentos, since it is on the way you can also take a look at this memorial to the big Portuguese explorers.
