The Belem Tower for visually impaired people, Lisbon

The Belem Tower is a small defense and ceremonial castle which was built in the 16th century on the bank of the Tagus River. It is one of the most popular landmarks of Lisbon, there are always tourists around and it is quite difficult to take pictures of this UNESCO Heritage listed monument without having people in the shot.

On one of the pictures you also see a small replica of the Belem Tower. It was developed to aid visually impaired people in getting a view of the tower. They can come much closer to it and feel the shape to form their view. An excellent initiative.

De Belem Toren is een klein verdedigings- en ceremoniaal kasteel gebouwd gedurende de 16de eeuw op de oever van de Taag rivier. Het is één van de meest populaire bezienswaardigheden van Lissabon. Er zijn altijd toeristen bij de toren en het is er redelijk moeilijk een foto te maken van dit UNESCO erfgoed monument zonder mensen op de voorgrond. 

Op één van de foto’s zie je een kleine replica van de Belem Toren. Men heeft het ontwikkeld om slechtzienden en blinden inzicht te geven op het gebouw. Men kan er veel dichter bij komen en de vorm aanvoelen om er een beeld van te krijgen. Een uitstekend initiatief.
