Reviewed September 8, 2013

This monument has a lift to take you to the top of the monument for a 4euros and it`s worth it, because the scenery it`s spectacular ans you can see below rosa dos ventos.

“Very moving”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Right on the spot. Similar to seeing where Columbus left Barcelona! The monument resembles the prow of a ship with sails billowing above. Each brave pathfinder stands on the shoulders of those who preceded him.

“An Awesome reminder of what it meant”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The Large Monument at the waters edge commemorates those the went to sea for decades and centuries. Great area for Photo opportunities also.Nice area just a little bit away from the Tower too.

“What a Tribute to the Discoverers”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a very impressive monument. If you're in the area, you should stop and walk around it. It's nice to see the water from here.

“Great place for an evening walk”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This monument in itself is a place where you just want to take several pictures and you are done. However, as this monument is only a 10 minute walk to the Tower of Belem it is a great place to go for a evening walk right by the river and see two things at once ;)
