We actually wanted to explore Belem properly having seen it briefly during the concert the day before. We jumped back on the hop-on, hop-off and visited some of the sights in Belem we didn’t get to see on Sunday.
We stopped first at a monument celebrating the Portuguese Age of Discovery. That’s Henry the Navigator at the front with a whole team of people behind him on both sides. The monument is a short walk from the Tower of Belem.
We headed to the Museu Colecao Berardo, a modern art museum near the main area in Belem.
I continued to not understand modern art, but perhaps Joe had a more enlightening experience. They had a more traditional collection of art as well that was quite nice.
We were both pretty wiped by the time we got back to the city. The 7-10 miles of walking per day were starting to take their toll and my foot, which I’d fractured a few months before the trip, was starting to act up. We grabbed another great meal at Time Out market before calling it a night.
