Beautifull views of the Tagus - just a short walk from the tram stop and other Belem attractions. Take a cab which are very cheap in Lisboa

It's an impressive monument in Belem. Just a short walk from the tram stop and other Belem attractions. You can admire the famous bridge in the distance as well:)

It's a "must" if you visit Lisbon. You can go on the top of the monument to enjoy a wonderful view of Tagus River

At only 3€ it was cheaper than the torre De belem. Top level was pretty compact but you can see just about the entire city. You can get some good photos of the bridge, Cristo Rei, and Belem. There is an underpass that makes it easy to get to Belem, the train tracks cut in between the two locations.

Take the elevator up to the top and you will see a nice view of Belem area. Located on the river, so you will have a nice view of 25 April Bridge too, great photo opportunities.

This is just a little further on from Belem Tower and has lovely restaurants near it. On the mosaic pavement is a map of the world so you can stand on national country!

In addition to the main statue of Henry the Navigator, holding a model of a carrack, on either side... More

It was nice to see such a famous landmark. Sadly there was scaffolding up on both sides when we were there. They were just taking down the scaffolding on one side though, so hopefully it won't be up for long!

3€ to get up but it's worth it becuase it a very nice view from the tower 50meters up. Perfect for selfies with the 25:e april bridge in the background
