No expense was spared when they built this masterpiece of Manueline and gothic architecture in 1502, which was inspired by Vasco da Gama who is buried here with other great navigators of the past.

If you are going to visit the Tower of Belem you have to pay a visit also to the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos... The church on the rightside before the monastery entrance is beautiful... The monastery itself is really stunning I love the cloister and the sculptures around it... Worth the visit...

We were surprised to find a long queue on a winter's day when we arrived. It took around 30 minutes to get tickets to visit the cloisters (cost 10 euro per adult but you can get a combined ticket for Torre de Belem if you have time to visit both in one day). You really need to have a couple... More

You could spend days studying the columns in the cloister (in the ticketed part) and in the nave of the church.

Eventhough it is far from town, but definitely it is a "must" place to go in Lisbon. It has amazing architecture from outside, but once you go inside it is even much better. To go there you will need to take tram 15 from Praca do Comercio. I suggest to go early morning because if it is late then there... More

There was a big queue when we arrived but only had to wait 20-30 minutes before we got inside. Touts selling scarfs, jewellery and sunglasses didn't persist too much trying to sell us unwanted items. What was annoying was that before we got our tickets from the main office a large group was selected behind us and forwarded to a... More

Definitely worth a visit. The ticket includes entry into Belem Tower also. Combine the Mosteiro visit with a coffee and several of the paisteis on sale nearby. These little custard tarts are THE THING to eat in Lisbon. Don't stand in a queue outside, go in and find a table in one of the many rooms and enjoy the experience.

We went when it opened and there were no lines. It is history, architecture and beauty. It will stay with you so do not skip.
