The aim of our conference tours is to provide opportunity for informal networking, possibly creating partnership among the conference participants.

First conference tour: Belém
Wednesday, September 26

The bus leaves at 12.00 from the conference venue.

In Belém you can admire two UNESCO World Heritage SightsBelém Tower and Jerónimos Monastery. Both are examples of richly ornate late gothic Manuelin style. 
Tower of Belém was built in 1519. When King Manuel I. ordered the construction of a military fortification, the tower was its important part.  It is city's icon, a symbol of the Age of Discovery. 
Jerónimos Monastery is the most impressive symbol of Portugal's power and wealth during the Age of Discovery. Its construction began in 1501. The cloisters are magnificent, each column differently carved with coils of rope and sea monsters. The church interior is spacious with octagonal piers richly decorated with reliefs.
