The Belém Tower symbolizes military and maritime power of Portugal. This Manueline monument was built between 1515 and 1521 by King Manuel I to defend the port of Lisbon, but also served as the lighthouse and the control tower. UNESCO listed this monument as World Heritage.
Belém Cultural Center offers four exhibition areas. It has since become the host of numerous international exhibitions (from photography to mixed-media installations), cultural events and congresses, and is also an arts complex with the city’s largest auditorium.
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.
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."
