“Loved Belem as lots to see, nice atmosphere, great restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We enjoyed our day in Belem having taken the tram from the city centre. Lots to see as you walk around from the Tower, views of the monastery, sweet antiques market in the park and topped off with a lovely delicious lunch at the Rosa dos Mares restaurant where you can people watch eating outside.

“Worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Based in Belem which is a nice relaxed part of Lisbon this is worth visiting. You don't need to go inside to appreciate it and its an amazing opportunity to see a world heritage site. With lawns around one side of it you can find plenty of places to sit and take in the view. Worth visiting along with the other parts of Belem.

“Great day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Definitely worth spending a day here if you're staying in Lisbon - highlights were the coach museum, antique/artisan markets in the park, the monastery and pastis de belem. The torre de Belem was pretty cool but maybe not worth the 5 euro entry fee.

“great place to walk around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Only 20 minutes with the tram from the city center, Belém is a great to walk alongside the river, enjoying the views of the monastery, the bridge and the incoming sailing boats.
