The tower of Belém, set up between 1515 and 1521, formed part of the most outstanding works of the Manuel style. Originally, this bastion with the looks of prow of ship was located at the medium of the river. The enemy boats, which entered the estuary, knew that the national fleet was ready to make fire. During centuries, Tage was silted up and the tower became integral part of the shore.
