Geocache Description:


Um dos monumentos mais visitados em Portugal. One of visited monuments in Portugal
TORRE DE BELÉM


Construída estrategicamente na margem norte do rio Tejo, entre 1514 e 1520, para defesa da barra de Lisboa, é uma das jóias da arquitectura do reinado de D. Manuel I.

No conjunto arquitectónico podemos separar dois corpos distintos, modelos da arquitectura militar: a torre de menagem medieval e o baluarte moderno que, com dois níveis para disparo de artilharia, permitia um tiro de maior alcance, rasante e em ricochete sobre a água. A Torre de Belém é um referente cultural, um símbolo da especificidade do país que passa pelo diálogo privilegiado com outras culturas e civilizações. Guardiã da nossa Individualidade e Universalidade, viu este estatuto confirmado quando, em 1983, foi classificada pela UNESCO como "Património Cultural de toda a Humanidade".

Built strategically on the north bank of the River “Tejo”, between 1514 and 1520, to defend the port of Lisbon, is one of the jewels of the architecture of the reign of D. Manuel I.

In the architectural ensemble we can separate two distinct bodies, models of military architecture: the medieval keep and the modern bulwark that, with two levels for artillery firing, allowed a farther shot, flush and rebound on the water. The Torre de Belém is a cultural landmark, a symbol of the country's specificity that passes through the privileged dialogue with other cultures and civilizations. Guardian of our individuality and universality, he saw this status confirmed when, in 1983, it was classified by UNESCO as Cultural Patrimony of all Humanity.
