Photographer's Note

Torre de Belém was built on the bank of Tagus river between 1515 and 1519. While it was constructed for defensive purposes on the edge of Atlantic Ocean, it was practically the starting point of Portuguese explorations. On those days "Learning about the world" really meant more than here in TE. In the words of Star Trek: "To boldly go where no man has gone before".
