Manueline Fortified Tower

This customs house, fortress and one-time prison has served as a guard post to entrance of Lisbon's harbor since it was built in 1515. The 17 cannons positioned at portals under the bulwark were a formidable fear to the waterline of any ship considering entry without first stopping for inspections of their cargo holds. It has the same architectural style of the monastery—Manueline—which is unique to Portugal and combines Gothic and early Renaissance elements. If you want to save your 5 euros, you can enjoy taking beautiful pictures of the exterior without missing too much.

Utrip Tips

*The combined ticket for the tower and the monastery is a good deal at 10 euros.
