Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Nice tower to visit. Nice view on top of the tower. You have to take tram 15e from the city center to the tower.

“A beautiful place to visit”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

The old monastery buildings are breath-taking and beautiful to walk around. Its a nice change from the city of lisbon, near the water etc with lovely gardens, fountains etc. Would reccommend if you have a few days to spend in Lisbon.

“Crowded without much to see”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went on Sunday when Belem was free, if I had to pay I might have skipped this site and there was nothing to see.

“Some unique monuments”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Go to Belem with the oldtimer streetcar no.15, get out at the Mosteiro dos Jerônimos, visit the new Cultural Centre and cross over the traintrack and big road to arrive at the riverside. There you'll find the famous and beautiful Torre de Belem. See also the Padrão dos Descobrimentos.

“Don't Miss”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

It is very much worth the effort to make the short tram ride (Tram 15) takes around half an hour, to Belem. There is plenty to see, but even if you are not interested in Monuments, Forts, or Cathedrals, you have to make the trip to try the authentic Belem Custard tarts, Delicious ! and worth the trip alone.
