One of the most popular tourist sites (judging from the number of large
coaches and people) is the World Heritage Site - the Jerónimos Monastery in Belem. The South Portal is particularly famous because of its
ornate carving and the inside of the Church (which houses the tomb of Vasco da Gama) has some amazing carved
octagonal pillars supporting the roof, some lovely stained glass
and a cloister
with yet more ornate carving
Nearby is one of Lisbon’s most famous sites, the Padrão dos Descobrimentos – a statue which commemorates numerous Portuguese
explorers led by Henry the Navigator.
And if course, just down the street is the famous Pasteis de Belem shop.
All-in-all, Lisbon is well worth a visit and we had a great time.
