Visited here as its up the promenade from the Belam Tower. A really impressively sculptured monument. Not sure the queue was worth the wait for the trip to the top. The beauty of this building is in the size and detail of its external design not a fairly ordinary panoramic view of a non too picturesque working river and its hinterland.

The monument of the Portuguese discoveries is an interesting modern structure surrounded by sculptures representing the main actors of the Portuguese discoveries, mainly 15th and 16th centuries. It was conceived for a temporary exhibition opening in 1940 – Portuguese World, in Belem area. It is by the river, and you can admire it for free, you only pay to go up to the top and see the views. From the monument you see the river, the bridge, and inland you have Jerónimos Monastery. In the area you can also see the National Coach Museum (maybe one of the most important in the world) and the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art.

Queue for 20 mins. Elevator to take you up and one storey to climb further to reach the top. View is satisfactory. Same way down and a small museum/gallery at the basement. Entry fee for adults €5.
