  • This monument stands in tribute to members of the Portuguese army who died during the Overseas War of 1961 to 1974. The monument consists of a triangular sculpture formed by two large black and white pillars to form an inverted V shape, over an eternal flame. Soldiers (look like Naval uniforms) stand guard over the flame and if you time it right, there's a changing of the guards, roughly on the hour.
  • Really quite area commemorating veterans from all around the world. Come here if you want to get away from all the noise and traffic of the Belem Tower. It is less than a 5 minute walk from the tower.
