Take a trip through history with a visit to the sensational Jeronimos Monastery and Belem Tower, two monuments dating from the time of Vasco da Gama (entombed in the monastery's church), Prince Henry the Navigator, Magellan, and all the other great Portuguese explorers.
These and other historical figures are immortalized in sculptures on the Discoveries Monument, which also has an illustrated pavement showing their routes and conquered lands.
For an overview of Portugal's pioneering role in world exploration, visit the Maritime Museum, the Ancient Art Museum, and the Orient Museum.
Also be sure to enter the golden interiors of São Roque and Santa Catarina churches. These have the most magnificent gilded art made possible with the gold discovered in Brazil.
