Then we drive back into the city to explore the suburb of Belem, where there are some important monuments dating back to the Age of Discovery. We stop at the 16th century Tower of Belem, a Unesco World Heritage site, which was the point of departure for the caravels sailing out in search of new worlds. Nearby is the Monument to the Discoveries, commemorating the 500th anniversary of the death of Prince Henry the Navigator. Afterwards we visit the Jeronimos Monastery (also a Unesco World Heritage Site), a masterpiece in the Manueline style, and the Carriage Museum (as these are closed on Mondays, the itinerary includes Ajuda Palace or Medeiros and Almeida Foundation instead). Then, following the Tagus, we visit Alfama, the old town, where you can sample a glass of port in a craft shop. We return to our starting point through the heart of Lisbon, passing through the Praça do Comercio and the Praça do Rossio and then the Avenida da Liberdade, the city’s main boulevard.
