In terms of places to visit and sights to see, this elegant western part of the city probably holds the record. Situated alongside the Tagus river, just before the point where river flows into Atlantic Ocean, in the 16th century, Belém was the gate which caravels sailed on their voyage of discovery of a New World. Belém quarter hosts several historical monuments of the top importance like Hieronymite Monastery, the Monument to the Discoveries, the Tower of Belém, the Belém Cultural Centre, the President Palace and Museum of Carriages.
