About Padrão dos Descobrimentos

In a prominent position on the right bank of the River Tagus, the original monument in perishable materials was erected in 1940 on the occasion of the Portuguese World Exhibition to honor the historical figures involved in the Portuguese Discoveries. The current replica, in concrete and stone, is later, having been inaugurated in 1960.

"What a nice way to end your day in Lisbon! It was a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Beautiful views of Lisbon city from the river. The time was perfect as we avoided the very high temperatures of the day. The crew was very polite and make us feel as being their guests. They gave us usefull information about the monuments but also gave us the necessary privacy space. Thanks a lot!"
Sunset Lisbon Sailing Tour Reviewed by: Charis
"This is arguably one of the best things to do in Lisbon. We booked a sunset cruise on one of the hottest days of the year. Besides cheating the heat it gave us superb views of a fabulous city. The boats aren’t crowded and the crew are super-friendly. We had a bottle of cold Portuguese fizz for €20 which made it even better."
"Foi bom ver Lisboa em outros angulos, Nossa guia turística Ninneta foi sem dúvida muito atenciosa e conseguiu realmente demonstrar Lisboa de forma espetacular. Super recomendo passeios com esta profissional."
