Torre de Belém: A Sentinel of Portugal's Maritime Legacy
The Torre de Belém is a tower located in the Belém neighborhood of Lisbon, Portugal. It was built in the early 16th century as a defensive fortification to guard the entrance of the port of Lisbon and the mouth of the Tagus River. The tower is one of the most recognizable symbols of Portugal's Age of Discovery and its rich maritime heritage, and is considered one of the most important examples of Portuguese Manueline architecture. The tower is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is now a popular tourist attraction in Lisbon, known for its ornate decoration and panoramic views of the city and the river.
