We didn’t go inside as we were told it wasn’t worth it. However, from the outside it was very mysterious. For someone who is into photography it’s a perfect place!

I had seen the building from a distance, but didn't appreciate it until I walked up to it and saw it from close range. Every angle, cloud and wave make it different. I didn't go inside because of the long lines, but still enjoyed it.

But don’t visit when it’s raining because in combination with the strong winds you will get soaked to the skin.

Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries),

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)
