It's ok but nothing extraordinary, nice views. Quite long line to enter and you also take much time to go up and down as staircaise is norrow and lights regulate which way when goes. Much greater is monasterio de Jerónimo.

Great to visit and take photo's although we didn't go inside, worth it just to walk along the promenade to the Monument of Discoveries.

Lots to see in Belem. This was just one of the many super sights. Thought Belem was well worth a full day and throughly recommend lunch on the river front.

but lovely in itself. We spent a long time looking for it because it's behind the train tracks and we were on the other side, a long way away from any crossing bridges.. Beautiful views over the Rio de tejo though must see when you go to Lisbon!

One of the must-do sights in Lisbon. Combine with visits to the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos and Monument to the Discoveries. Go early or late to avoid the crowds.

First off, this is a must see in Lisbon. It is pocket-sized, separated from the shore and close to two other major sights in Belem - Monasterio and Monument to discoveries. It does require some walking from them, but it is worth it. Several floors of rooms, at least a dozen of mini towers for you to go into and... More

Just another tower but it is along the river so you can get a good photo. It is near a number of other tourist attractions - coach museum is nice.
