Modern Belém Print

The Portuguese World Exhibition of 1940 that took place on the grounds adjacent to the Jerónimos Monastery revolutionized the area’s urban landscape. Only then, one might say, did Belém truly enter the twentieth century. New streets opened up while others were sacrificed, roads were widened, and neighbourhoods were built with new infrastructure, many of which designed by great Portuguese architects.
We invite you to discover, among other things, what remains from the Portuguese World Exhibition: the Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Monument to the Discoveries), the ‘Espelho de Água’, the Estação Fluvial de Belém (Belém Boat Station) and the Praça do Império (Imperial Square). We also suggest taking in the more recent buildings designed collaboratively by foreign and Portuguese architects, such as the Centro Cultural de Belém/Museu Coleção Berardo (Belém Cultural Centre/Berardo Collection Museum) and the new Museu dos Coches (National Coach Museum).
