Torre de Belém (Belem Tower), Lisbon, Portugal

The Torre de Belém is located on the waterfront on the Rio Tejo (River Tagus) in Lisbon, Portugal. This tower is a popular tourist attraction and landmark. While it no longer has a light, a light tower was erected in front of the tower portion of the building in approximately 1886 but was removed in 1945. The actual gothic tower itself dates back to 1520. The photos were taken in April 2013.
