Buy you tickets in the museum next door for this place and for the tower then pass the queues straight in. View Vasco de gamma's tomb and the old monastery.

This monestary has long queues in the summer but the inside garden is really worth the visit in its own specific Manuel style.

The interior is no less impressive, there is almost no colour, all the same silvery stone and the entire building is a wonder in stone lacework. The central nave is held up by pillars of which everyone is in a different style of Manueline architecture. The monastery has very large gardens in front which lead to the Tagus and other... More

This monastery is massive and beautiful! Outside is way more overwhelming than the inside but definitely a must when in lisbon. I recommend purchasing the lisboa card which includes numerous sites and transportation for free or discounted, this attraction is free with the card

A beautiful place, we have history, architecture, gardens, the river and the sun all together on a mix of the past and the present to add to the experience. And don't forget to eat the do delicious Pastéis de Belém.

Wonderful architecture - not quite like anything I've seen before - don't miss the cloister! It's gothic but with an organic quality, like something from a fairytale.

Very interesting history and many other attractions nearby make this a must see. Belem (the neighbourhood where the monastery is located) is about 15 minutes away from Baixa downtown by tram (#15 from Figiero Square)
