This tower is quite impressive, especially the carvings on the side. Definitely worth a visit so don't miss it.

Belém Tower is a Manuelian Gothic fortress tower in Lisbon. The tower is listed at the beginning of the 1500s to commemorate Vasco da Gama and the patron saint São Vicente

The Belem area is quite beautiful with its large parks and activities. The Torre de Belem is a must see and I think the best time is late in the afternoon when you catch the sun as it begins to set. This makes for beautiful views and photos!

I visited the tower with some friends and as we waited for our turn the staff was rude to other visitors as they accidentally went wrong way in the hall. That killed the mood in the line and even though the tower itself was nice to see, we felt like stranges in someone's home after that. No smiles or saying... More

It is a beautiful monument. There's not much to see inside and the steps are narrow and many but the architecture is worth the climb. This is a "Lisbon classic" (although technically it is located in Belém).

Beautiful, five centuries old tower on the Tagus river bank you must see when you visit Lisbon. I enjoyed watching the river on a sunny spring morning, Cristo Rei and 25th de Abril bridge in the distance, seagulls in the water. Really nice and calming place.

Very much worth a visit while you are in Portugal. People need to learn to follow the 'traffic lights' on the narrow, one way staircases though! We had an incident with a bunch of people who were going up while you were supposed to go down and they almost threw me off!

Well worth a trip. Take the 15 tram from city centre. Go back in time in the Tower. Before heading back to the city, grab som famous pastries from Pastiches de Belem coffee shop across the road from the tram stop.

We reached it taking a tram and then had to walk for a while, but I'm happy we did it. Once we got there, we were glad to visit it.
