Lifestyle! Lisbon

Hello dear readers,

I’ve been serving as a tour guide through Lisbon for my friend who has been visiting me these couple of days and I’ve decided to share some of the pictures we took! These three monuments are very important in Lisbon. Firstly we have the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos which is a Monastery of the Late-Gothic considered one of the most prominent monuments to the Manueline-style ( an architectural style typically portuguese). It was built by Infante Henrique the Navigator around 1459.
Also in Belém, Lisbon we went to two more monuments, Belém Tower that was built in the 16th century and also captures the Manueline-style. It is built in an iconic façade in the banks of Tagus (Tejo) River. Also in Belém there is the Padrão dos Descobrimentos or Monument to the Discoveries. This monuments celebrates the Portuguese Age of Discovery (or Age of Exploration) during the 15th and 16th centuries. It was It was made in 1939 by Portuguese architect José Ângelo Cottinelli Telmo, and sculptor Leopoldo de Almeida, as a temporary beacon during the Portuguese World Fair opening in June 1940.
