Wonderful views from the top of the tower

Don't miss The Tower if you visit Jeronimo/Belem. The view front the top of the Tower and the turrets are a terrific spot for photos of the river and the bridge.

Neat building but top terrace is closed at the moment. The building itself does contain very much info or artifacts. There's is some information boards throughout, but not sure if it was worth the entrance fee without access to the rooftop.

You can do a tour of the monastery and tower for €12. we went in January so wasn't busy I'd imagine during spring and summer it would be better to pre-book in advance.Worth a visit

Absolutely loved Torre de Belem - the view from terrace is amazing and inside is really cool too. Good time to travel is winter as there is not so many tourists

The tower is very charateristic in its manuelin style. you can admire beautiful statues and walls. With Lisboa card it's free. However is difficult to visit the terrazza because always you find a queue.

This is a pretty location. Once this was surrounded by water, but today there is a lovely promenade around it. Not sure it is worth paying to go up in it unless you are not going to higher ground for photos.

It's pretty and has some nice views, but it is definitely not a must see. Only really worth it if you have time to visit the monastery too.

We spent 6 days in this lovely city from Jan 3 (Christmas decorations still up - an extra bonus); did loads and left loads for a return trip. We took a half day tour of Lisbon sites that included the Torre de Belem, monument to the Discoveries, coach museum - a great surprise as I (stupidly) thought it it was... More

The grounds were very nice but the Tower was closed for the holidays and we were unable to go inside.

Staying in Belem

Neighbourhood Profile
Belem
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
