DescriptionIn this picture we can see the planet Venus the Moon with a litle Earthshine and
The Bélem Tower. It was built in the early 16th century in the Portuguese late
Gothic style, the Manueline, to commemorate the expedition of Vasco de Gama.
This defensive, yet elegant construction has become one of the symbols of the
city, a memorial to the Portuguese power during the Age of the Great
Discoveries. In 1983 it was classified, together with the nearby Mosteiro dos
Jerónimos, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
