Padrão dos Descobrimentos

Raised at the time of the Exposição do Mundo Português, the pompous Padrão, designed by Leopoldo de Almeida, it is set on a wind rose and its caravel shaped drawing is creative. Inside the monument, a lift goes up to the sixth floor, where you find the access to a terrace from which you have a great view over the river and Belém. The attics lodge temporary exhibitions.
