    This self-driving tour in Spain and Portugal was booked by Ctrip. Ctrip booked Lisbon Hotel. From August 19 to 21, we stayed at Holiday Inn Express Lisbon-Oeiras Lisbon for two nights. We chose this hotel because we are on the side of the highway. It's very convenient to find the road and park for free. The hotel is in Sinter. In the middle of La Lisbon, we visited Sintra and Cape Rocca one day, Lisbon one day, and Lisbon two days. We were not tired at all. Finally, when we returned to Spain, we walked 4 183; 25 Bridge, and we could also take a tour of the statue of Jesus. Belenta is the most classic landmark of Portuguese ports and the symbol of Lisbon. It witnesses the voyage and departure, return and reunion of countless Portuguese ships during the Great Voyage period. When it was first built, it was used to defend the enemy. Later, with the end of the war, it was transformed into a customs house, a lighthouse, and even a water jail.

    Bellenta is a landmark attraction in Lisbon. It is located on the Bank of the Tejo River. It is a five-storey square fortress tower. It is the starting point for ships to go to sea in the era of great voyage, the symbol of Portugal's era of great voyage, and of great significance to Portugal. Now the tower still retains its original appearance, climbing to the top of the tower can give you a glimpse of the beauty of the Teju River extension, and overlook the vast Atlantic Ocean ahead, which is very spectacular.

    Lisbon's landmark buildings, one of the must-visit places, are located at the junction of rivers and seas in Belem District. At different historical stages, Lisbon has assumed various functions from fortresses, wharfs, prisons, lighthouses and so on. Upon the top of the tower, you can see 425 Bridges and both sides of the river. The scenery is very beautiful.

    Bellenta is a landmark building in Lisbon, Portugal. Portuguese love the lighthouse. Perhaps it is a spiritual sustenance of the era of great navigation. If the tower can speak, I think it will not be able to tell the historical witness in a few days and nights. How many stories have been circulated in the wind in that era of cross-sea sailing?

    One of Portugal's seven miracles was defensive fortifications in the early days, then customs, telegraph towers and lighthouses, which were used to imprison political prisoners during Spanish rule. ???
