Top ways to experience Torre de Belém
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Belém
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 restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.

It's an iconic monument in Lisbon. A perfect addition to an afternoon spent in the Belem section of Lisbon. The monastery, monument to the discoverers, and Pasties de belem.

The heart of Lisbon

This Tower is the beginning of great travels and discoveries that have made Portugal a great country. This is the calling card of Lisbon. From here it is necessary to start studying it. Beautiful promenade and walking area. Nice cafe located next to the Tower view)

Belem Tower on the Tahoe River, special, can be combined with the Discovery Monument located a short distance away. Afternoons in my opinion are the best for a visit.

great photo opportunity
Sep 2021
A must see in Lisbon. The tower is closed at the moment so this is a photo opportunity only. The area around is great for sitting and soaking up the atmosphere. There are drinks stalls and buskers.

Beautiful castle
Aug 2021 • Couples
Really liked the entire set up and when the tide is in and the river higher it becomes a small island. Very impressive and would like to see it light up at night.

Still closed August 2021
Aug 2021 • Couples
Interior still closed to public. The outside is very photogenic, and the building itself is a historic part of Lisboa. No visitors are currently allowed inside.

Not blown away by it but nice enough to look at if you’re in the area but I wouldn’t go out of your way for it to be honest with you
