Upon departing the pier, one of the first sites you will see is the April 25th Suspension Bridge, sister to the Golden Gate, and the towering Christ the King Statue. The tour continues with a visit to the Jeronimos Monastery, a 16th-century architectural masterpiece. Nearby, you will see Belem Tower and taste the famous "Pasteis de Belem" Lisbon's pastry delicassei.
