Considered to be one of the main works of the Portuguese late Gothic style, the imposing Belem Tower is a must-see while in Lisbon. Built from rare, local limestone, the tower was commissioned by King John II in the early 16th century and is considered one of the seven wonders of Portugal. Open to the public, the tower can be climbed to the top, where visitors will catch beautiful views of the river.
