You pay 2.5€ even if you have the Lisboa card, only to see the exposition about president's. This is nothing exceptional : a collection of presents received during official visits and an interactive (boring) show on tablet about each of the presidents. Absolutely not interesting....More

We were really expecting a magnificent palace. After all, the president of Portugal lives there. However, we were met by a very neglected pinkish façade, which fails to impress even when watched from a distance. There were no tours available when we visited, and the...More

Hi, Belem is in fact also in Lisbon. You can get there by public transport (no subway). It's just about 10/15 minutes from the city center. Best regards.
