"Belèm." Belém sightseeing Tip by Maurizioago

Belém sightseeing, Lisbon: 22 reviews and 26 photos


Favorite thing: Belèm is a district of Lisbon. It is located six kilometers from the city center.

One of its main attractions is the Jeronimos monastery (1502-1551); a huge white building with a magnificient carved portal and a big two-storeys cloister. Not far from the monastery there is the Discovery monument (see tip). After quite a long walk you arrive to the tower of Belèm. It was built between 1515 and 1520. This is the only monument built completely in manueline style in Lisbon.

Belèm is located alongside the river Tagus. You can go there by tram n. 15 from Commerce square.
