I'd somehow expect the bridge to be a little more substantial for such a tower. Never mind, it gets you inside!
nossa, parece um lugar muito lindo mesmo, gostaria muito de conhecer!
I can only think that this bridge to this spectacular tower is a much later addition to accommodate tourists.
Beautiful building. I think I would be in awe of the building that I would'nt have paid too much attention to the walk way.
@Violet Sky and Francisca: If there was a kind of entranceway in the good old days, I'm sure it would be wooden and massive. This is new, I still remember the previous 'bridge' for visitors which was, in fact, nicer than this.
«Louis» welcomes you to Sunday Bridges, JM, and he hopes you'll join in any Sunday you have a bridge to post. «Louis'» posts publish at 0001 hrs central Europe time, despite his San Francisco location. Boa vinda!
There are a lot of people using this bridge to this historic sight. I love how your photo shows just a slice of this building.
«Louis» has linked to your blog in his right side bar.
E daqui sairam à conquista...Boa foto :)
This picture makes me want to see more! I love photo's that stir the imagination like this.
Amazing tower, I want definitely see more shot of it.
A wonderful composition.
Yes you think for the tourists they would put up a massive wooden bridge reminding one of the proper times but anything will work. Beautiful tower. MB
Another of your exciting compositions, Jose. The light is gorgeous and their is a sense of vibrancy to the scene. I think it's the people making their way across that little bridge. Of course the tower is magnificent, too.
Oh, re: Charity Ministries: This outfit is not Catholic and would be insulted by the thought they would hold "masses." It's a fundamentalist Christian group holding the typical views -- that the Bible is inerrant in all aspects and one must be "saved" to get into heaven, etc.
I have not traveled much outside Europe, but I still remember this tower as one of the most beautiful places I have seen.
Love this posted...it look fantastic !
Terrific composition. Better than most postcard I've seen which are trying to "sell" a city to the viewer. Lovely!!
I like your composition on this one as well. Love how old it is with all that history! I looked at your previous post, the place looks small but grand at the same time.
What a lovely tower. I'd be making a mad dash across that bridge :-D
What an impressive setting for this castle.
Ooh, what I'd do to be on that bridge on my way to the tower!
This looks like a fantasy castle.
A very nice bridge. I have been to Belem, Brazil, but never Belem, Portugal.In fact, I've never been to Portugal at all. :( But I hope to get there one day. :)
The Belem Tower is incredibly beautiful and old, and this bridge adds such charm.I wanna go in!
Whata unique place!:) Alsoa nice and interesting shot.
I was there in Easter 1975, just after the Revolution; fond memories... great blog
