Impressive structure in beautiful condition on the river. It's certainly worth seeing just for its uniqueness and as its a important symbol of Lisbon.

The tower was closed (due to rain?) but still imposing and beautiful. It was worth slogging thru the rain to see.

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.
