Interesting historic monument located by the water. Good to see along with the other monuments in Lisbon. Make sure you to see the memorial who lost their lives serving the military of Portugal. Beautiful structure and great to see on a clear day!

Nice tower with beautiful architecture, butt very long queues of over an hour in the heat to get in. You can save a little time by buying tickets in advance ( for instance, at the Jeronimos monastery) which gets you into a different queue. But...More

Not worth the time queuing to get in to climb up and then to climb down. The exterior of the tower is more dramatic (against the ocean) than the interior. By all means take photos of the exterior and walk to the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos...More

Worth seeing from the outside. Not worth standing in an hour queue to get inside. You'd better spend this time on walking through Lisbon picturesque streets.

Decided to visit the tower on a sunny afternoon. There was a big queue waiting in the burning sun so we didnt go inside. It's a beautiful tower from the outside, but not that interesting or special in my opinion.

We didn't actually make it inside, we had a combined ticket with the Monastery but when we got to the tower the queue was very long. After queuing for nearly an hour in the heat of the day, with no shade and not having moved...More

Whilst in Lisbon it's impossible not to see the Torre de belem as it sit's right on the banks of the port as is quite stunning to look at and well worth a visit.  There are queues but worthwhile  waiting it's a piece of history...More

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

Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries),

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.
