No access was possible on the day that we visited. "Copy" of the Belem Tower in Lisbon to link to Portuguese heritage. Just a sight on a walk through the town centre to more interesting locations.

An interesting maritime museum located in the Torre de Belem. Modelled on the one with the same name in Lisbon. Good views from the top. Only 200$. Allow 20/30 minutes to visit.

Not a lot to see to be honest although I never bothered venturing upstairs, one of our party who did fell down them with quite a bump. Don't go out of your way for this.
