This a great place to relax, enjoy the view, take good photos, that is once the Street sales people leave you alone. Is the only drawback of this place because they swamp your group and are very intense insisting that you have to buy them...More

Take the tram (modern) to Belem from outside Cais Sodre station, you can pay on board. Short walk from Belem town centre where there are lots of cafes, tourist shops.

We travelled all the way to Belem from downtown Lisbon, which should not be a big deal but for us it was horror. The trams and buses that take you to Belem are way too rare to serve the huge influx of tourists heading for...More

A fantastic looking place to visit and capture some beautiful pics! In August it had a huge number of visitors. I would recommend the hop on bus which stops at this site.

On our last day decided to visit Belem as it was a short taxi ride from our hotel. This site is great in the sunshine and can be fun for all. Very busy for a Monday but did not ruin our experience. Worth the visit!

really nice monument, the best place to go and eat your Pasteis de Belem natas. Wouldn't say it's worth going to Belem just for it, but if you are there, definitely drop in.

Tried to visit in August around 11.00 on a Tuesday morning to find a huge queue - so gave up.... looks like tour buses choose this point to turn around and go back into lisbon.

Belem was stunning and I would allow at least one full day to see it all. Well worth a trip, plenty to see

Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries"
and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire
day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos
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

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)

If I'd had it to do over I wouldn't go inside the tower at all. It's not worthwhile. And you're very likely to end up with wet ruined shoes.

We got a multi ticket which covered the monastery, museum and tower for €16. The ticket for monastery & museum was €12 & by going to the museum entrance & paying you can avoid the long queues for the monastery.
