36 Monuments that a good Portuguese must know

Whether for historical importance, for marking an era or for being representative of the country, these monuments characterize well what Portugal is, and all Portuguese should visit (at least) once in their lifetime.

Some are older than nationality, others are icons of the founding of the country, but they all mark the history of this planted seaside country.

Walk through the gallery and discover the monuments you have to meet.
