“Everyone must see that Little tower”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

It's little and beautiful that Lisbon monument. If you go to Lisbon you better see the tower. View from the place is nice and we didn't took the stairs . We saw the river view with the tower from the yellow bus at Alfama neigbourhood. It's a beatiful view.

“Watchable, visit inside isn't necessary”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Looks great, is famous so worth to see. If Y need nice view from Tower - go inside. But truly? It isn't necessary to enthuse the edifice.

“Where the Tag river goes to Atlantic Ocean”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Monument Padrão dos Descobrimentos for Henry the Sailor, impressive vie for gate: copy of Golden Gate. Step to Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (monastery) and to Belem Tower and Belem Palce. Must see!

“Iconic monument”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

You must go and visit this when you go to Lisbon. Set on its own against the delta. Views are great from the top but be prepared for a long climb up a narrow stone circular staircase and then a scary climb down as the one way system fails!

Top tip; go on Sundays and it's free, otherwise it's €5.

“Very cool historical structure and beautiful architecture but way too many people”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I think this is a must visit if you're in the Belem area which is probably what makes it so incredibly frustrating. The architecture is extraordinary but be prepared for long waits crammed against a staircase. I was alone and had plenty of time so I didn't mind but there were multiple instances where 50+ people would be coming down a staircase while 50 more were waiting to go up. They either need to have some traffic directors or admit fewer people per block of time. I'm glad I visited it but the better views are had from the outside. If you don't like being trapped and shoved stay away from this attraction.
