On a very hot day (as most in Lisbon are) make sure you go down to the Torrent de Belem nice and early, or very late. Otherwise you find a very crowded tower and little wriggle room for photos. The queue to get into the...More

Really amazing monument from the outside but so poorly organised that even with a small queue you could wait for hours and to be honest, more impressive from the outside and possibly not worth such a long wait to see the inside.

Torre de Belem is located in the Belem neighborhood, and while you cannot enter the tower, it is quite a striking structure with an interesting history.

Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries"
and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire
day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos
Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries),
museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and
breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your
visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of

We didn't use the Lisbon card but I did see these being used at the monastery so I assume so (we bought a joint ticket for Belem +monastery)

We got a multi ticket which covered the monastery, museum and tower for €16. The ticket for monastery & museum was €12 & by going to the museum entrance & paying you can avoid the long queues for the monastery.
