The Maritime Museum is a museum located in the west wing of the Hieronymite Monastery. You can see here: different kinds of boats, royal barges, charts, maritime instruments and historical seaplane.
In 1907 it was declared a National Monument and in 1984 it was classified “Cultural Heritage of all Humanity”. UNESCO says: "Standing at the entrance to Lisbon harbour, the Monastery of the Hieronymites - construction of which began in 1502 - exemplifies Portuguese art at its best."
The Monument to the Discoveries was inaugurated in 1960 during celebrations of the 500 year anniversary of the death of the Infant D. Henrique (Henry the Navigator). It is visited by millions of people each year.
Beautiful, culturally resplendent and immensely significant in Portuguese history, Belém is one of the jewels in Lisbon’s crown. In terms of places to visit and sights to see, this elegant area of the city probably holds the record.
This pastelaria located in Belem is the most famous bakery in Portugal and dates back to 1837. Inside number 84 of the Rua de Belém, in a factory founded in 1837, you can see azulejo panels from the XVIIIth century, almost as famous as the sweet pastries sold there.
