Monument to the Discoveries Lisbon Portugal : Tours and Excursion

A breathtaking site to witness with a private guide in Lisbon is the Monument to the Discoveries. The Monument to the Discoveries was symbolic of the glamorized idealization of the Portuguese exploration.   An excursion in  Lisbon should include visiting this landmark. The original assembly was created in steel and cement and the statues were manufactured in a composite of plaster and tow.

The stunning design takes the shape of a ship utilized in the early Portuguese exploration.   The sculpture of Henry the Navigator sits on its edge and alongside the ramp rest16 figures, with a total of 33, demonstrating figures from the Portuguese Age of Discovery. These important people of the time period included monarchs, explorers, mappers, artists, scientists and missionaries.   The three interior areas are the auditorium, a second level containing two halls for display, and the third level consisting of four rooms.

A guide in Lisbon can show you around the Monument to the Discoveries.  The peak of the monument provides views of the Belém neighborhood and its abundant attractions, such as the Belém Tower and the Jeronimos Monastery, which are dated back from the Age of Discovery.  Your tour in Lisbon will certainly be a memorable one.
