Santa Maria de Belém, or just Belém is a parish of Lisbon, located 6 km west of the present city centre and 2 km west of Ponte 25 de Abril (25 April Bridge). Its name is derived from the Portuguese for Bethlehem. Perhaps Belém's most famous feature is its tower, Torre de Belém, whose image is much used by Lisbon's tourist board. Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Monument to the Discoveries) is a monument on the northern bank of the Tagus River estuary, celebrating the Portuguese Age of Discovery (or Age of Exploration) during the 15th and 16th centuries.
