This is a must see when you are in Lisbon. A few metres from the Praça do Comércio. Even more beautiful when the sun sets.

Fascinating structure. Was very rainy when we went to see it - right on the water. Was not able to go into it. Built in 1515!! Moorish-style watchtowers. Entrance is via a gangway. Might have been too wet to let us in. Still a fascinating...More

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.
