500 years ago Portugal was a maritime superpower in the golden age of 'The Discoveries'. This monument, which dates from 1960, of stone and concrete, to that era, portrays the bow of a ship, with sailors, soldiers, priests and cartographers on board. The bow is facing out into the bay, from where many of the Portuguese ships sailed to all 4 corners of the globe. It is possible to go to the top by means of the elevator. The view from there is good, but there are far more elevated and better views to be had in the Alfama district of the city.

A beautiful monument that commemorates the tremendous work and effort of Portuguese explorers. It is impossible not to notice it when visiting Belem. This is one of the most monumental monuments in Lisbon, although it belongs to the relatively young. The original structure was erected for the World Exhibition in 1940. and in its present shape it was unveiled only in 1960. The structure itself is made of concrete and is 52m long. The monument shows us great Portuguese explorers, sailors, scientists and missionaries. We will find here, among others Henry the Navigator, Vasco da Gama, Ferdinand Magellan as well as Diogo Cao, Nuno Goncalves, Luís de Camoes, Bartolomeu Dias and Afonso de Albuquerque. At the top of the monument is a viewing platform from which you can admire the Belem panorama. Access to the observation deck by elevator . It's worth getting closer and taking a look at the Portuguese sailors. Especially since it is on the route from the Monastery of Jeronimos to the Belem Tower. A must see.
