“April in Portugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The Belem Tower is beautiful. The Monument to the Discoveries is also worth the visit. Both have incredible views of the river.

“If you don't come here, you're never been to Lisboa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

A must see attraction as this landmark is synonymous to Lisboa. Be sure to come in before 930am to have a better view (take better picture with few people on the background), as people belonging to group tours will come in droves. Fortunately, we came in here before 930am and indeed, we got some good pictures. Ola!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

You need to take a bus to get there but there are plenty. Belem is interesting and can answer some historical questions that you hadn't actually thought about

“Belem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Lovely place to wander around and take photographs - or just people watch. Quick trip from Lisbon on the train or tram.
