Belém is just a short tram ride away from Lisbon, and it is definitely worth visiting.
It's one of the biggest tourist destinations around Lisbon, but that's understandable because it is so beautiful.
Belém is associated with the Portuguese Age of Discovery - all the renowned explorers were from Portugal.
