... Our next stop was the Monument to the Discoveries. It is located on the banks of the River Targus. It was built in 1960 to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry the Navigator. The monument stands 170 feet high. It was built in memory of the mariners, royal patrons and all those who took part in the development of the Portuguese Age of Discovery.

Our time in Lisbon is over and we went out with a bang. In our final days we visited the Castle of São Jorge, the Lisbon Oceanarium and met some new friends. The Castle of São Jorge is in the middle of Lisbon and can be found on top of a hill, which provides a breathtaking view of the city. It was a great place to visit at the end of our trip, because we could see the streets we walked, the squares we visited and the routes we ran in the city. I really enjoyed playing ...
