Holiday in Lisbon, October 2013 (Part 2)

On our last full day we retraced the bus ride we had taken on our first day. This time we were able to hop off. We were able to get a better view of the Belém Tower or the Tower of St Vincent. It is a fortified tower located in the civil parish of Santa Maria de Belém. We then made our way to the nearby Monument to the Discoveries. Then we had a walk through a park to the Jeronimos Monastery. Then it was back with the bus to Lisbon centre and the Chiado Square. We had little time on our last day as we had a plane to catch but there was just time to visit the Gulbenkian Gardens, which were an oasis in a busy city.
