Belém Tower is a classic landmark of the port of Portugal. It witnessed the voyage and separation of countless ships in Portugal during the Great Navigation era. The return and reunion was completed by Manuel I in commemoration of the arrival of Da Gama in India. Used as a customs, telegraph station, or even a lighthouse. The whole building of Belém Tower is arranged in an "L" shape with five floors. The whole tower is made of white marble and is a typical Manuel style building. The tower is surrounded by stone ropes, with stone knots, crosses and some stone carvings of plants and animals. It is very special.
