Sculptural. Discover all the explorers, authors and historical figures represented in the Monument to the Discoveries.
Amazing views of Lisbon and the suspension bridge. If you come at the end of the day, you can catch an amazing sun set too. Lovely vibe and one of Lisbon's nicest view points of the coast and suspension bridge. You can also go up the monument, however, there's plenty more to do and see outside.
Climb to the top but especially, look at the marble floor in on the street in front of the monument's entrance. It features a gigantic map of the World with the dates and routes of Portuguese adventurers and navigators during the Portuguese Discoveries' times.

“At the beginning of the Nineteenth Century, in Belém, next to Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (the Heironymite Monastery) there was a sugar cane refinery attached to a small general store. As a result of the 1820 liberal revolution, all convents and monasteries in Portugal were shut down in 1834, the clergy and labourers expelled. In an attempt at survival, someone from the monastery offered sweet pastries for sale in the shop; pastries that rapidly became known as ‘Pastéis de Belém’. At that period the area of Belém was considered far from the city of Lisbon and mainly accessed by steam-boats. At the same time, the grandeur of the monastery and the Torre de Belém (the Belém Tower) attracted visitors who soon grew used to savouring the delicious pastries originated in the monastery. In 1837, the baking of the “Pastéis de Belém”began in the buildings attached to the refinery, following the ancient ‘secret recipe` from the monastery. Passed on and known exclusively to the master confectioners who hand-crafted the pastries in the ‘secret room’, this recipe remained unchanged to the present day. In fact, the only true ‘Pasteis de Belém’ contrive, by means of a scrupulous selection of ingredients, to offer even today the flavour of the time-honoured Portuguese sweetmaking.”
