Superb monument, full of meaning and traditions. Great architecture from a building completely renewed in the XX Century. Very well located

We went to see the monastery very early one morning. By the time we arrived, the wait was well over two hours. Saw the attached church, which was nice. Be ready for a long wait if you want to see the monastery.

We bought our tickets in the archeological museum next door, and consequently passed the very long queue . It was nice to see but underwhelming overall. Would not be worth 90 mins standing in the sun.

We visited this monastery after seeing many others throughout Portugal and honestly we were a bit disappointed. Batahla was by far much more intricate and stunning. Certainly if this is the only one you get to see in Portugal, then it is worth the queues...More

The monastaty is beautiful, but the lines can be daunting. Here is what we figured out. Large tour buses drop off in front of the monastary and so the entrance queue can be very long and a bit confusing. First, you do not need to...More

We waited in line before it first opened. Even though we were not far back in line, it still took a long time to get in. Limited amount to see inside (only a small part is available to visit) and the displays inside are mediocre...More

If you think the church of the monastery is wonderful (which it is) then you will love the cloister as well. It is highly ornate, beautiful coloured stone intricately carved and when the sun is shining reflecting the soft light into the depths of the...More

Well, if it's still useful to you, you can easily get to Belém from downtown Lisbon by taking the train at Cais do Sodré (metro/train stop) towards Cascais. That's cheap and fast. Or you can take a taxi. Enjoy!
