Place is beautiful, nice night view to the river, including view to an old navy vessel. The cultural center does have some interesting attractions, but people actually go there for the place and the views from it. Restaurant is pricey, but good.

This centre is by the old fort. There is a walkway by the river with wonderful views. Cultural displays are found in the building which change from time to time. A small park is on the grounds. As the temperature rises stop for a chilled green coconut and relax in the shade. There were old cars on display out front... More

The complex itself is a beautiful place to go for a walk. Inside the house there is a restaurant which I strongly do not recommend. They are unable to provide good service and to bring your order in an acceptable time. Don't go to this place, if you don't want to be nervous.

A istoric old building, converted into a space with diverse ambiences: live music, pub-style, restaurant-style, open-air or within the air conditioned room - for any or all tastes, it has the right spot to enjoy a drink and good company. You can order snacks, or have a meal. However, prices can be high: check the menu before ordering! A great... More

Beautiful surroundings in an old building, with a great value buffet lunch. We had good service here and live music adds atmosphere - always busy too. Out the back beautiful views over the river. You can choose to sit out the back, but it is very hot!

The building is imposing but there is no major attraction on it. When I came tio visit there was a small art exhibition on the upper floor but there was not a cafeteria for instance, which is a pity because the back garden with its view to the river would be a nice place to sit and enjoy a coffee.

This structure have an ongoing work of preservation. It is vast, cool, the walls are so compact, make you wounder how much work was required to build. I can't imagine how much work was required to clean all this windows.

Situated in the edge of the river, there is a scenic view and also a huge vessel on the rear portion of this attraction, right in front of the Belem Cathedral, and besides the Presepio Fort. It is a place to enjoy and spend time, among visiting its historical locations, museum of modern and contemporary arts as well as its... More

Is is e best restaurant I visited in Belem. The food is great, but what makes it so special is the building itself. It has a wonderful view of the river. You can take a table outside to enjoy it. Nevertheless, the indoor part is also excellent. Very elegant place.
