LISBON, GLOBAL CITY

Mosteiro dos Jerónimos

Near the place where the Infante D. Henrique, in the middle of the century. XV, ordered to build a church on the invocation of St. Mary of Bethlehem, King D. Manuel I wanted to build a great monastery. In order to perpetuate the memory of the Infante, for his great devotion to Our Lady and his belief in St. Jerome, D. Manuel I decided to found in 1496 the Monastery of St. Maria de Belém, near the city of Lisbon, near the Tagus River. Donated to the monks of the Order of St. Jerome, it is now commonly known as the Jerónimos Monastery.
The Monastery is a cultural landmark that has not escaped even artists, chroniclers or travelers during its five centuries of existence. It was the reception and burial of kings, later poets.

Zoo

Opened in 1884, the Lisbon Zoo was the first park with fauna and flora of the Iberian Peninsula. There were several founders, such as Drs. Pedro van der Laan and José Thomaz Sousa Martins and Baron de Kessler, who had the support of several personalities, such as King Fernando II and the well-known zoologist José Vicente Barboza du Bocage .

Torre de Belém

Strategically built on the north bank of the river Tagus, between 1514 and 1520, to defend the bar of Lisbon, it is one of the jewels of the architecture of the reign of King Manuel I.
In the architectural ensemble we can separate two distinct bodies, models of military architecture: the medieval keep and the modern bulwark which, with two levels for artillery firing, allowed a farther, sweeping and rebounding shot over water.
The Torre de Belém is a cultural landmark, a symbol of the specificity of the country that passes through the privileged dialogue with other cultures and civilizations.

The Fado of Lisbon

The Fado of Lisbon may have been born of Arab songs among the population who lived in Mouraria after the Christian Reconquest. However, the truth is that there are no records of this musical style until the first half of the nineteenth century, and it is most likely that the Fado evolved as a descendant style of the middle-class songs of the latter (according to Teófilo Braga).
