Culture-Landmark Culture-Statue

This very tall and intricately detailed monument was built to honour the Portuguese explorers, and was built 500 years after the passing of Henry the Navigator's death to commemorate his accomplishments. A fairly recent monument, made permanent in 1960, its tower-like structure allows you to go up to the top and enjoy a beautiful view of both the river and Lisbon itself. Right in front of the monument is also a beautiful map of the world engraved in stone, featuring the different dates and places that the explorers discovered. You can usually also find a lot of musicians playing traditional Portuguese music and artists hand-painting or drawing gorgeous portrayals of the city. Here, you will find a lot of stand-up scooters which you can rent very cheaply, and will allow you to explore the city in a faster (but safe) way. They mostly use the bike lanes to drive around, and it can be a lot of fun for both adults and children.
