Must see!

Beautiful part of Lisboa, a bit far form the centre but worth the trip, especially on a sunny day. Make sure you stop for pastel de nata on your way back.

Honestly, we didn't spend the 6EUR to enter the Tower but it was worth the visit from the outside and something to do before going to purchase the Belem Pastries.

We visited this attraction in the pouring of rain which proved to be a waste of time as most of the attraction is outdoors. We paid 6 euros each to get in and was only there for about 10 minutes. The historic side of the tower was interesting but they need more information on display to get a better sense... More

All the way down to the Tower is worthy. You can enjoy the walking absorted in your own thoughts, with friends or family and I had such a great time. By going there, you can know more about the Portuguese culture.

We walked along the promenade and visited Torre de Belem. It was an excellent attraction and would definitely recommend it.

6,5€ entry fee. In my opinion too expensive!!! There is nothing really to see inside. Worth visiting and taking some pics from the outside but too expensive for what it offers

Torre De Belem or Belem Tower is an absolute must visit in Lisbon. This is beautiful piece of architecture which is just in the water on sea shore, and it is absolutely beautiful to walk in to the Torre De Belem and explore it. Make sure that you get here just before sunset, as the views of the water are... More

This very unusual building represented a unique moment in history, when Portugal was at it's zenith of power. This buildiing is several floors of a "fortress", with tiny corridors to the edge of the building, and a tight spiral staircase up the upper floors. I enjoyed it for it's unuiqe architecture, historical importance, and the view of the river. Crowded,... More

Lovely building, worth a visit, preferably in the summer since it's a bit cold and windy in the winter. Few nearby restaurants that are ok, wouldn't visit for the food but good for a coffee.

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.
