"Portuguese Sailors Memorial"

This is one of the many monuments found in the city which is dedicated to one of Portugal's famous explorers. The monument itself was erected in 1960 to mark the quincentenary anniversary of Henry the Navigator's death. It pays homage to all the brave Portuguese sailors who ventured forth in search of undiscovered land. The structure is 54 meters (177 feet) high and depicts sailors on the helm of a ship which is about to set sail on the river Tagus. The main part of the monument features a ship and three commanding Portuguese historical figures. The likeness of Henry the Navigator is followed by that of King Manuel I and then finally poet Luis de Camôes. The top of the structure can be reached by lift and indulges you to a breathtaking view, overlooking not only the river but much of the historical district of Bélem as well.
