“Photo opportunity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2009

Built 1960 to mark 500th anniversary of death of Henry the Navigator. 52m high. Worth a photo opportunity as you walk from the Monastery to the Torre de Belem. See photos.

“Pretty Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2006

I did not actually go inside the monument but from the outside, it is impressive. The views are great and there is an elevator which will take you to the top of the monument to see the views of lisbon.
