Day 12 - Lisbon - Torre del Belem

From the Monastery we went to the Padrao Dos Descobrimentos, which is a monument dedicated to Portuguese who took park of the Age of Discovery or the Age of Exploration. 

The monument is very near the Torre del Belum.  The tower was built in the 1500's and was used at first as a fortress and then as a political prison.

Excuse the odd picture of me, it was incredibly windy out there!
