World Heritage: Belem Tower

 Last month, I visited my 65th World Heritage Site, Belem Tower in Lisbon, Portugal.

Above is not a picture of Belem Tower; it's what the Stable Diffusion AI drew when I gave it the prompt "Belem Tower".

Here's what Belem Tower actually looks like. It was built in the Lisbon Harbor both as a defensive fortification and to commemorate all the voyages of the Age of Discovery.

It was neat to climb the stairs and enjoy the views of the harbor.

The other part of the World Heritage Site is a monastery. I did not visit it, but here I am holding some pastries in front of it.
