The Jerónimos Monastery is a magnificent architectural masterpiece and a UNESCO World Heritage Site not to be missed. This stunning monastery showcases intricate Manueline-style carvings, soaring vaulted ceilings, and beautiful cloisters that symbolise Portugal’s golden Age of Discoveries. Built at the beginning of the 16th century, its historical significance is immense as it houses the tombs of famous figures like renowned explorer Vasco da Gama. It represents an awe-inspiring blend of spirituality, art, and Portuguese heritage – a must-visit during your Lisbon adventure! 

Belem Tower


Don’t just visit Belém Tower in Lisbon, experience it! This iconic 16th-century fortress stands guard at the mouth of the Tagus River, its limestone facade sculpted with ornate Manueline symbols of Portugal’s seafaring might. Imagine the thrill of explorers like Vasco da Gama setting sail from this very spot! Climb the narrow spiral staircase for panoramic views, then explore the echoing chambers where cannons once protected the city. Belém Tower isn’t just a beautiful landmark – it’s a portal into Lisbon’s adventurous past.

Discoveries Monument

Step onto Lisbon’s waterfront and let the Discoveries Monument transport you back to Portugal’s Age of Exploration. This towering stone sculpture depicts heroes like Henry the Navigator leading a bold charge toward the unknown, their ship-like form etched against the Lisbon sky. Don’t just admire it from afar! Ascend to the monument’s top for breathtaking views of the Tagus River and Belém district.
