It is the most beautiful place in Lisbon with the monastery, the gardens and the banks of the Tagus river. On a good sunny day it is lovely to stroll in the gardens in the area.
Several of the tourist attractions are in this place and it is flooded with tourists.

Tram or more easily bus ride from the centre of Lisbon, Belem offers some of Lisbon's most famous sites, all within easy level walking, including the St Jeronimo monastery, the monument to the Navigators and the Torre de Belem. The Pasteis de Belem cafe/ patisserie is not to be missed either for take-away or table seating. If the tables in the front room are full, just keep going through the rooms at the back.

When I travel I like to visit as many World Heritage sites as I can. I enjoyed three when I visited this area of Lisbon! Talk about history! Wish I'd studied more careful when in school!

Great sights and UNESCO world heritage buildings, good modern art museum and the best custard tarts in the world. Do not miss it.

Belem is a great and very touristy neighbourhood. Lots of great museums and you can walk along the shore. Look for the restaurants near the cathedral for some decent outdoor dining and look into purchasing a Lisboa Card before you good for free and discounted entrance to the historic sites in Belem. A great afternoon adventure.
