Visiting the Belém Tower is like being in a familiar place but with wonders to discover. That giant monument made with skill and detail to take off the hat in those margins of the river Tagus make of Lisbon a city of stories, monuments and memories that enchant the view and wills to review always and always.

Beautiful and typically Portuguese tower at the entrance to the harbour at Lisbon. Don't listen to those moaning about queues and steps. What do you expect at a tower which is one of the most visited sites in Lisbon? Not to be missed.

Located right on the water it offers beautiful views of the Ponte 25 de Abril and Christ the King from the top. It was raining the day we visited so there was a bit of flooding on the little bridge connecting the tower which kind of made the experience more fun as you had to time the waves in order... More

Beautiful place! The bad thing is that they do close early so try to make it as the first stop you do since there are a lot of places to stop and enjoy the view around here.

Was pretty and nice to look at but we were there on a Monday and pretty much everything was closed so couldn't actually visit.

Great sunset point to relax by the water or on the grass. Didn't have the time to go in but would definitely recommend it for a sunset stroll.

the best part of this attraction is from the outside - the inside is only one stairway which caters to people going up and down - just a photo outside with the tower, sit on the steps and have an ice cream :)

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.
