“Worth the tram ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Breathtaking cathedral. Beautiful cloisters. Rather dreary walk to Belem tower but well worth it. Tower is spectacular with fantastic views if you scale the narrow stairs to the top. Lisboa ticket gives admission to both attractions. Monument to navigator well worth the ascent by lift. Nice cafe by marina. Don't miss it.

“Altis Belem Hotel & Spa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

WOW, what a hotel! I thought the Sofitel Grand Legend in Amsterdam was amazing, but this hotel is that plus a work of art. Every detail thought of, little specialty services everywhere. Beautifully appointed and modern. To die for food.

If you want to know how different types of ships were made and used for Voyages, visit Musiums at Belem.

“Lots to do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

There are so many things to do in the Belem area! There is the Belem Tower, of course, but the explorers monument, war memorial, monastary, Pasteis de Belem bakery, coach museum, contemporary art museam are also there. We actually spent two days in Belem. Don't short change yourself on visiting this area, because you might think you can get by with just a couple hours (and if you want to see much of it you can't).

It is easy to spend the entire day in Belem because it is well served with restaurants, cafes and dessert venues as well as attractions.

“Hmm Belem pastries and beautiful buildings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Wow.. I like pastries but these are delicious! Belem Pastries are the original typical little pastries that you MUST try if you are in Lisbon.
Belem has also a lot of cultural things to see. Hire a bike and go there along the riverside from Lisboa. It's a half our ride and it's really nice!
