No visit to Lisbon is complete without a trip to the Belém district, located about 8 kilometers (5 miles) west of central Lisbon. And, no visit to Belém is complete without stopping at the Belém Tower (Torre de Belém) , officially the Tower of Saint Vincent (Torre de São Vicente). Today, the 30 meter (98 foot) limestone tower and bastion is one of the finest examples of Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline style. Visitors to the tower can climb to the top where they will be rewarded with views of the 25th of April Bridge, the Tagus River, and Christ the King statue.
