Torre de Belém

Torre de Belém

The Torre de Belém (Belem Tower) is undoubtedly Lisbon's most iconic landmark. The tower has a surprisingly rich exterior with beautiful sculpted balconies and fine limestone ornaments, a testament to the wealth Portugal experienced during the Manueline era.
The Torre de Belém was originally completely surrounded by water but over the centuries the Tagus river receded and a section has silted up. The tower is now easily accessible from the riverbank by a walkway that brings visitors right to the entrance.
