The few people in the tower during the visit. On the other hand, the wait is extremely long. Why don't we set a timetable?

Ideal that all public transportation is included. Also did train to Cascais and sintra. At castel sao jorge we could pass the queue through a separate entrance. Whether we got the price completely out of it I do not know but the convenience was nice.

It says in the email that you will receive tickets. This is not the case. You will receive a confirmation. Otherwise top. Quick handling at the airport.

When we entered the tower there were not many people and it was a very interesting visit. The views of the Tagus are fantastic.

The Belém Tower has long been a symbol of Portugal’s history, culture, and heritage. Officially called the ‘Tower of Saint Vincent’ (in honor of Lisbon’s patron saint), this notable landmark is a 16th-century fortification on the River Tagus. Serving as a starting point and destination for Portuguese ships and explorers, it was also a ceremonial gateway to the city.

Dive right into exploring this UNESCO Heritage-listed monument and its historic role. Learn about how it protected the city as part of a tripartite defense system and how this fell apart after the Spanish Occupation. With its limestone foundation and traditional medieval architecture, better known as ‘Manueline’ architecture, the most noticeable elements are the twisted ropes that wind around the building – ending in elegant knots – armillary spheres, crosses of the Order of Christ, and other Gothic features. The Tower consists of four stories: the Governor's Room, Kings' Room, the Audience Room, and the vaulted chapel. Upgrade your experience with a Lisbon Card included, which gives you access to several sites like the Jerónimos Monastery, the National Costume Museum, and the National Museum of the Azulejo, along with free transportation.
