LISBON: Belem Tower

The ornate Belem Tower made UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 1983.

Like many of the historical buildings of modern Lisbon, construction of the Belem Tower is related to the age of the great geographical discoveries.

The architect inserted Moorish elements in the structure and decoration of the tower.

Across the river, graced by a pair of white sails, to the 25th of April Bridge and Christ the King.
