Torres de Belem.

The Tower of Belem - it was out in the river but land reclaim has 'moved' it closer to the shore. Basically an ornate fort and prison on the mouth of the river.

  1. We climbed that tower a few years ago. The steps were nasty!

    We got a kick out of the fact that you can drive right up to the river and into it if you wish! Not the way we do things in the US - land of the coddled.

    Great pictures; love following your travels.
