The monument was built in 1939 for the 1940 World's Fair. It has an art deco style and a golden color, and because of its dramatic location on the shore of the widest part of theTejo River, the 171 foot monument really stands out. Honoring the great explorers of the Golden Age of Discovery, there are representations of Henry the Navigator, Magellan, da Gama, and other notable explorers. It's a wonderful structure and you can actually go inside and walk around the different levels, as well as go to the top and get amazing views of the city.
