Really amazing monument from the outside but so poorly organised that even with a small queue you could wait for hours and to be honest, more impressive from the outside and possibly not worth such a long wait to see the inside.

Torre de Belem is located in the Belem neighborhood, and while you cannot enter the tower, it is quite a striking structure with an interesting history.

Impressive to look at from both land and water, jutting into the sea and resembling a seagoing ship.

Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries),

breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your
visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of

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.
