All year long
When we talk about the history of Portugal, we can't possibly forget its great discoveries and its sailors who set out to conquer the new world.
The Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos), created by Cottinelli Telmo and Leopoldo de Almeida was erected for the first time in 1940, then rebuilt in 1960 to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of King Dom Alfonso Henriques.
With its height of 50 meters, it offers a breathtaking view over Lisbon and the Tagus. And now it is home to an auditorium and two exhibition halls.
Closed on 1 January, 1 May and 25 December
