A fantastic adventure to Belém
Belém, whose name is derived from Bethlehem, has many of Portugal´s distinctive buildings and landmarks, including the Jerónimos Monastery and the tower of Belém.
Go on a tuk-tuk ride west, just out of the city center. Here everything is historical and sacred, with emblematic monuments that have stood the test of time. It was from this part of town where the great Portuguese explorers embarked on their voyages around the planet.
Here you may get off the tuk-tuk and visit some truly amazing monuments. See the Jerónimos Monastery, which is a world heritage site of gothic Manueline style architecture. Learn about the Belém Tower, just across the road, which was built between 1514 and 1520. Then head slightly down the river to the Monument to the Discoveries, which was dedicated to the Portuguese discoverers. These three monuments are some of the most visited in the city.
Do not forget to sample the famous Pastéis de Nata while you are in Belem.
