Memorial for Portuguese soldiers who died overseas, Lisbon

This Portuguese memorial in the suburb of Belem (Lisbon) is really impressive. On top of a green blue water pond, they erected a modern pyramid. Here burns the eternal flame to honor the fallen soldiers. Alongside the artificial pond, all names are carved into a stone wall. Visitors may enter a little chapel for prayers.

Deze Potugese memorial in het Belem district van Lisabon is heel indrukwekkend. Boven het blauw groene water oppervlak bouwde men een moderne piramide. Hier brandt het eeuwige vuur ter ere van de gesneuvelde soldaten. Langs het artificieel water, staan alle namen in een muur gegraveerd. Bezoekers kunnen een in een kleine kapel gaan bidden.
