Nothing spectacular. It is historic but all of Europe has places like this that are more impressive. Big queues and not a great view as the river is full of industrial areas.

Well worth the climb up the spiral stairs for the breezy view from the top. Be aware that the climb up or down is regulated by signs and beeps to avoid clashes on the spiral stairs.

The area is attractive. However, Torre Belem itself does not offer too much (or almost nothing) inside. You pay just to climb up the tower to have some nice views.

We made a point of going to the tower of Belem but when we got close the lines were so long we did not go in. From the outside it looks like the pictures, nothing to wow about.

Location in park at seaside is wondrous. I wanted to go inside, yet line was long, so admired from exterior only. Must see and is very close to Jeronimo's Monastery

It's a strange idea to be at a place where all the Portugese heroes have been as well. It was very crowded, so we didn't go inside.

Not worth visit inside. Take your pictures outside. Even if you buy your ticket ahead, you have to wait a long time at the entrance to enter because there is a limiting capacity. While waiting, people got wet from crashing wave. There is only one...More

We visited this after Jeronimos monastery as it was close by. However after reading the reviews, didn't bother with getting tickets to go inside. So only viewed from outside. Great photo opportunity. Nice example of historic Portuguese architecture.

Definitely worth visiting, as very historic and beautiful. When we were there the tide was out, which was a pity. Definitely you should buy tickets in advance to avoid Q

Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries"

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

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)
