Really gorgeous views around Belem tower Perfect on a sunny day. The queue to get in was quite long so we never ventured inside. There are plenty of restaurants and places to grab a drink around this area and it is a lovely place to chill.

You will spend most of your time waiting in lines for overrated sights. And with Lisbon Card you have to wait even more. Tower of Belem has two lines to stand to get to the top. Unable to enjoy it.

Access is a bit long with usually queuing outside between 30 to 60 min. Price to enter is 6€. Buying ticket in advance can reduce waiting time significantly. Visit inside offers limited interest and going up and down the four floors is not always easy with only one staircase very narrow. Good health condition is recommended.

The lines to get in where huge. The tower is really small. People going up and down have to wait in the narrow staircases for others to pass. To get further up on the tower you have to wait again in line.

This was one of our must-sees in Lisbon. We had planned on getting there early in the day, but that didn't happen. We arrived around noon, so it was crowded. There is a wooden walkway to the entrance and we were 3/4 of the way along. The line didn't look like it was moving but there were people coming along... More

If you like history, the sea and great views, don't skip this, especially because it's included in the ticked you get for the monastery. A little queueing might be included but since it's a small attraction, it goes fast.

this tower lies in the river and is situated in the Belem area. You can get there from Praça do Comércio with tram line 15. It takes you about 40 minutes. It gives you a nice impression on a part of the Lisboa history and of course nice views.

Top tips 1) buy a combined visit ticket with another attraction so you can beat some of the queues 2) visit early morning or late afternoon. The tower itself is lovely and there's pretty decent views from the top. The problem is they only allow 120 people in at a time. I understand the reasons why, but it does mean... More

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.
