We visited this after Jeronimos monastery as it was close by. However after reading the reviews, didn't bother with getting tickets to go inside. So only viewed from outside. Great photo opportunity. Nice example of historic Portuguese architecture.

Definitely worth visiting, as very historic and beautiful. When we were there the tide was out, which was a pity. Definitely you should buy tickets in advance to avoid Q

With any popular attractions, expect lineups. But this is worth the visit. Cost of entry is 12 euros if you buy the package to include Jeronimos Monastery, which is also worth the visit. Be prepared to take lots of pictures at both of these attractions.

Great trip! Beautiful outside and surrounding areas but no need to wait and pay to go inside. Thoroughly underwhelming!

We stopped here as part of our Globus tour. It was interesting to see and learn of its history. The architecture and purpose was worth stop.

Not worth it really - is a very heavily restored fortification heaving with crowds of people. Better views to be had, with fewer people, elsewhere around Lisbon.

Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries"

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

There is parking on the other side of the dual carriageway. You have to walk over the footbridge; it's very easy!

There is a whole area of food carts and a market very close. We were on line for the torre de belem and my adult children went to get food and they said it was delicious.

We didn't use the Lisbon card but I did see these being used at the monastery so I assume so (we bought a joint ticket for Belem +monastery)
