Belem Tower, Lisbon Reviews

  • If you are into medieval history. You will love this place. Outside look great. Strong. Big fortress. Inside is not as awesome. It is small, tiny and hard to move. The guide only allow around 120 persons at the same time inside.

  • Very impressive, in fact all along this area is very impressive. Great for the photo opportunity, however watch out for all the touts. They can be quite annoying trying to sell their tat. If you get the chance, visit the memorial dedicated to Portugal’s fallen warriors. It’s only a couple of hundred meters away from here. Solemn and humbling

  • This place was great for me, but if you're not into history, especially medieval history, maybe give this one a miss. It costs €6 for adults, €3 for other people (including students and children). The insides, as many others have said, aren't as awesome as the outside. If you have time, definitely visit here just to see it - definitely worth your time. However, if you aren't really into your medieval history, maybe visit the Castle of St Jorge instead which is slightly more interactive / interesting.

  • Be ready to climb. Fear not, you can take breaks and stop off on floors , well timed climbs. Great views. Tickets can be purchased steps away contrary to the badly composed sign at the entrance. Lisbon cardholders stand on a line on the left and persons who purchased on site can pass that cue by going on the right

  • It is definitely one of the best landmarks in Lisbon a great place to visit. Going inside can be a bit pricey but on a good day, just looking at it from the outside can be a fantastic experience. The view and the reflection on the water at sunset make it a great place to spend the evening/late afternoon.
