The Discoveries Monument stands at the edge of the Tagus as a reminder and testament to Portugal's golden age of discoveries, when explorers such as Vasco de Gama searched for and brought treasures back from the New World. Other figures on the monument include Camões and Henry the Navigator. Go at sunset, when the monument catches the last of the sun's rays and turns golden in the light.
