This old defense tower has a story; it was originally built in the middle of the river. It now sits on the edge since the river was later redirected. The Tagus river is a wonderful place to walk along and see many historical sights, but...More

Got the tram from centre of Lisbon out to Belem which was pretty efficient. Walked for a bit along the seafront until we reached the Tower which was closed by the time we got there. However as a stand alone monument it's pretty impressive. Worth...More

The Torre de Belem is definitely worth a visit. It's steeped in history (Fascinating that it was actually built on an island originally) and such an iconic building that it would be a shame if you didn't see it while in the area. I took...More

This tower is a gem and well worth a trip to Belem to see, but the interesting bit is the outside. We stood in the sun queuing to get in whilst once again tour parties walked past. Once inside we found ourselves in little more...More

best to rent a bike at Cais de Sodre (BIKE IBERIA @Largo Corpo Santo) and ride along the Tejo river to Belem and all the sight seeing there

We visited in mid-March, it was cold and windy and everyone that crossed the bridge to enter the tower got soaked by waves coming over the bridge. So we only observed the tower from the outside. It is a nice looking tower, fairly small at...More

It is a very nice tower, but the outside is particularly interesting (they have depicted a rhino, which has an interesting story since it is Dürer's rhinoceros). Not a long queue, but the inside is less interesting and austere. Just go to see the whole...More

There is a bit of a queue to get into this so go early. The history of discovery and its place in this is the thing you really feel when you visit here

We were first in line at the Monastery and avoided the lines there. So by the time we finished and walked over to the Tower, the line to get in was long, about an hour's wait. For a while the line did not move at...More

There is parking on the other side of the dual carriageway. You have to walk over the footbridge; it's very easy!

There is a whole area of food carts and a market very close. We were on line for the torre de belem and my adult children went to get food and they said it was delicious.

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)
