The famous Tower of Belem is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and
is one of Lisbon's most photographed landmarks because of the
decoration on its exterior. The outer walls are adorned with a
stone-carved rope and beautiful openwork balconies, along with
Moorish watchtowers and battlements shaped like shields. The tower
was built in the 16th century to serve as a fortress in the middle
of the River Tagus.
