Padrao Dos Descobrimentos Reviews & Ratings
A very nice and symbolic architecture masterpiece. It has a specific story about the glory of the Portuguese explorations and discoveries around the World but even without knowing its meaning, you can appreciate both the drawings on it as well as the overall settings in front of the sea in Belem with the bridge on the back! The whole area is great for a walk and certainly made more attractive by the presence of this huge work!
Gorgeous architecture and monuments. One of the most popular places in Portugal. Its filled with tourists and yet its clean and not overly crowded. Beautiful place to visit. Only con is not having enough shade anywhere so its a bit harder to stay around for longer time period cause of the heat and heavy sun.
As monolithic stone structures go, it's pretty breathtaking. I don't know well enough to know for sure, but I hear the various gargoyles placed at the bottom depicted the various priests, religious figureheads and or lords who sent out positive vibes to all the different ships sent from Lisbon all across the world. Be that true or not it's well pretty so it is. A must see for those down that way. 5 stars!
A monument dedicated to the spirit of Portuguese exploration. Fairly narrow, but there's an entrance to some exposition inside the monument. The statues on the side seem impressive given the detail and scale of monument as a whole. A big tourist point here is to take a picture of your foot on the south-most point on the compass map sitting at the foot of the monument.
The details of the people involved in this monument are phenomenal! Really interesting to look at. I myself am an artist, but I am not that good at sculpting yet, I haven't tapped into that skill yet. I'd honestly like to know more on this monument, maybe even go there someday.
