Visit the Peace Tower - Benfeita

The Peace Tower, located in the Village of Benfeita, rings bells in 1620 (which lasted for days the 2nd World War) every year on May 7 - the day lasting peace in Portugal during the conflict.
It was probably one of the first places in the country to know the news of the war's end.
Immediately, the church bells rang, as happens every year since.
This tower has a clock that is a fine example of old mechanical watches.
