Know More about this tour

Meet your guide near rose-hued Belém National Palace (Palacio de Belém) — the official residence of the Portuguese president — located near the historical heart of Belém.

Beautiful, and as culturally resplendent as it is historically significant, the lively neighborhood of Belém is Lisbon’s crowning glory. As you traverse the narrow streets with your guide, hear about Belém's role in Portuguese history and see the age-old monuments that stand side-by-side with bustling cafes and contemporary art galleries.

Pass the National Coach Museum, one of the world’s finest and most eccentric collections of horse carriages, and cross Afonso de Albuquerque Square to see the bakery where monks invented the pastel de nata, also known as the pastel de Belém, an iconic Portuguese confection.

Next, admire the grandiose exterior of the Monastery of St Jerome (Mosteiro dos Jeronimos), arguably the most famous example of Portugal's late-Gothic architecture, and see neighboring Belém Tower (Torre de Belém). Hear about the long histories of these two World Heritage–listed sites before concluding your tour by the Monument to the Discoveries.

After bidding goodbye to your guide, return to the monastery and the Belém Tower. With your provided combined ticket, skip past any entrance lines and head inside on your own to discover its magnificent cloisters, royal graves and the Santa Maria. Alternatively, you may visit the monastery or the tower on another day.

  • The skip the line tour of the Tower is the only way to go. Great views with no waiting in the very long line. Our guide provided excellent historical information about various landmarks in the Belem section of Lisbon with historical info and advice for places to visit in depth after the tour.

  • Historical tour but too pricey. Needs to be enhance so tourist would appreciate more. Tour guide should be with the tourist all the way especially going to the Torre de Belem and Monastery of St. Jerome .

  • Excellent tour guide,quite knowledgable and most informative! Highly recommend!

  • To pricey for just walking tour and see Monastery and Tower on our own.

  • The tour guide was so informative and easy going and fun! He took such amazing pictures of my husband and I! A lot of walking but we stopped at a lot of historical landmarks so it wasn and #39;t too bad! Thank you so much!
