It's pretty and has some nice views, but it is definitely not a must see. Only really worth it if you have time to visit the monastery too.

We spent 6 days in this lovely city from Jan 3 (Christmas decorations still up - an extra bonus); did loads and left loads for a return trip. We took a half day tour of Lisbon sites that included the Torre de Belem, monument to the Discoveries, coach museum - a great surprise as I (stupidly) thought it it was... More

The grounds were very nice but the Tower was closed for the holidays and we were unable to go inside.

this is one of those places you have seen so often and it doesn't disappoint when you finally experience it for real, along with the area of Belem

I wasn't able to go in as it was closed but it was still worth the trek to see it. It is walking distance from Jeronimos Monastery. I was impressed that there was a full 3D model and braille description for the visually impaired.

This was one of my favorite places to see in Lisbon! The tower is truly a beautiful one of a kind construct, protected under UNESCO. Isolated on a river, it makes it even more special and great for taking pictures and just admiring the architecture!

The sky was so gloomy last 2nd January but this did not take off its beauty. It's just 10 minutes walk from Jeronimos monastery and I'm pretty sure there's public transportation closer to the tower. Sadly, it closes on Mondays so we didn't manage to get into the tower. I saw many pictures of the tower especially during sunset and... 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.
