Worth the small fee. Really nice quick stop. There are a few small restaurants near by and the walk to it is nice.

The architecture is fantastic it is magnificent easy to access, the problem is the queue to get inside then to queue again to get to the top of the tower. If you have just a weekend in Lisbon just forgot it and it is only February .

We visited the tour recently. Really amazing, looking over the water to the 25 April bridge and showing off the ornate architecture. Didn't see the rhino though.....

Relatively good value if you purchase a joint ticket for the tower and monastery (12 euros) - the tower looks spectacular from the outside in the afternoon sun and does offer lovely views across the Targus. Entrance to the upper levels of the tower is well managed (with some queuing involved). There isn't a great deal of info in the... More

Part of Belem. For me the most interesting part of the city. The Torre and then a walk along the front to the monastery and art gallery. Fascinating

Like most of Lisbon the people that built this city thru the ages have done one hell of a good job, here is a masterpiece of amazing building, and so much detail in the stone work.

this is a big part of Portugal history and one of the structures that were not destroyed in the 1750 hurricane. If you want to go to the top there are several steps to take (it is worthy though.

we bought a ticket for the monastery and the tower but wish we hadn't bothered. It was a long walk to the Tower and little there when you arrived. We queued for a long while.

Torre de Belem is great to visit. The sounding area is wonderful and relaxing. It's near the waters and has a park like area, where you can sit in the grass and enjoy the soothing view.

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.
