This is a "must-see". Go early in the day as it tends to get busy. Surprised that it was free to get in.

The Monastery is located at a place called Belem. Connectivity to this place is excellent by public transport. In the vicinity lies the Tower of Belem. The Monastery in itself is a magnificent architectural marvel, but of greater significance is the fact that it was...More

The church and monastery cloisters are separate but one ticket with 2 queues. Seems busy all the time but great photos inside and cool on a hot day. Worth it to go get combo ticket for Torre de Belem

An absolute must see. The phenomenal architecture and location are absolutely stunning. It is easy to reach using the tram system and go early.....it is relatively quiet until about 11am when the hoards of bus tours arrive and barge their way through.
