 Vasco de Gama Tower in the Parque das Nações
Vasco de Gama Tower

The Vasco da Gama Tower (Portuguese: Torre Vasco da Gama) is a 145 m/476 ft high lattice tower, built over the Tagus river. It is named after Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama, who was the first European to arrive in India by sail, in 1498. The architecture of the tower was by Leonor Janeiro, Nick Jacobs and SOM. The steel structure, representing the sail of a caravel, was assembled by engineering company Martifer.
The tower was built in 1998 for the Expo 98 World's Fair. At the 120 m/394 ft-level, there was an observation deck and, just below it, a luxury panoramic restaurant. At the base of the tower was a three-storey building that served as the European Union Pavilion during the expo.
