“worth it to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I enjoyed the view from Padrao dos Descobrimentos and the ticket cost me only 3 euro. Everything was reachable within walking distance-for me preferable than public transport.

“Crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Too crowded by tourists. Many many lines everywhere, a bit too tourist oriented and losing authenticity.

“Nicest neighborhood, great sites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Took one of the tourist buses. Don't miss the Maritime Museum and boats and the early airplanes. Excellent cafe at the end, good food, eat outside if weather permits. Then went to the monastery itself and briefly the cathedral. Great cloister, good local exhibits, everything translated into English.

“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

It is the most beautiful place in Lisbon with the monastery, the gardens and the banks of the Tagus river. On a good sunny day it is lovely to stroll in the gardens in the area.
Several of the tourist attractions are in this place and it is flooded with tourists.

“A stroll in the sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Tram or more easily bus ride from the centre of Lisbon, Belem offers some of Lisbon's most famous sites, all within easy level walking, including the St Jeronimo monastery, the monument to the Navigators and the Torre de Belem. The Pasteis de Belem cafe/ patisserie is not to be missed either for take-away or table seating. If the tables in the front room are full, just keep going through the rooms at the back.
