The Belem Tower is very important to the history of Portugal. The tower aided greatly in the country’s colonial exploits by sea. It was also a very important defense ground for the city of Lisbon. Due to this and also its gothic beauty, the place has been declared a World Heritage site.
The gorgeous stone building is a must visit while in Lisbon. The stone that the place has been made out of is as rare to find as it is beautiful. One tall and beautiful building stands surrounded on all four sides by walls. The architecture is lovely and the carving is intricate.

Belem Tower Reviews & Ratings
This tower is in the re-developed area of Lisbon, with museums and towers and other tourist attractions. If you intend to come here, do yourself a favor and buy the city pass with the prepaid ticket, otherwise the lines are very long and it does take awhile to get in here. We like this old fortification. I went in as far as I could. Being 6'5" tall and weighing just over 100 kilos, I could not make it up the circular staircase that goes to the very top floor. That stairwell is too small or I'm too big, one or the other. We did enjoy our time here. It is well worth a visit. I paid the senior rate of €3.00 and my wife paid €6.00. Just be aware there are significant lines here.
Beautiful views, wonderful park right next to it with restaurants nearby. Can spend a half day in this area! The views are lovely and there’s a lot of history in this little tower.
If you wanna get inside, need the time around 30 minutes for waiting line. Otherwise just take the picture? May be less than 10 minutes. Here to airport 25 min drive by the car. So I recommend you stop by here if you are visit to Lisbon.
This is a beautiful tower in wonderful condition. It is well worth the trip over to see from the center of town. Expect to find a crowd because this is quite a gathering place. Just stand back and watch how people gather around and enjoy the setting.
The tower is interesting but not worth all the waiting and the price. Maybe when it's not high season so it's less crowded. It's enough to see it from the outside and read some info about it from a guide. Rather take pictures of the tower from the park and rest there under the trees as the location truly is excellent and enjoy the view of Tagus river. Discovery monument is a much better place as the view from the top is outstanding.
