Discovering Belem Tower | An emblem of Portugal's nautical legacy

The Belem Tower, a majestic fortress-like structure, stands as an iconic symbol of Portugal's rich maritime history and architectural prowess. This UNESCO World Heritage site, located on the banks of the Tagus River in Lisbon, beckons tourists with its intricate Manueline design and historical significance. With Belem tower tickets, visitors can explore its fascinating history, soak in breathtaking views, and immerse themselves in this timeless landmark.

Things to know before booking Belem Tower tickets

Book in Advance: During the peak season (April to October), it's advisable to book your Belem Tower tickets in advance. Booking ahead ensures you secure your preferred date and time, avoiding potential long queues and disappointment at the ticket counter.

Opt for Combo tours: The Belem Tower is located near several other popular tourist attractions, including the Jerónimos Monastery and St. George’s Castle. You can easily combine your visit to the Belem Tower with a tour of these other landmarks.

Get yourself a little treat: Pastéis de Belém, a bakery near the monastery, is the original site of Portugal's famed pastel de nata egg tart—after all, you deserve a reward after navigating those 200+ steps! Even if there's a long queue there, you won't regret it.

Open terrace: While the views from the open terrace at the top are certainly a highlight of the Belem Tower, don't feel pressured to rush through the rest of the structure to get there. Be aware that due to the single staircase, the visit follows a one-way path. To manage visitor flow, a red/green traffic light system controls whether people ascend or descend at a given time.

Bring a Valid Photo ID: To enter Belem Tower, you'll need to present a valid photo ID along with your ticket. Any official ID with a clear photograph of the visitor should suffice.
