About these ratings

Located about 5 miles west of Lisbon's center, Belém is a waterfront neighborhood with some of Lisbon's most important monuments, museums and one very popular Portuguese tart place, the Pasteis de Belém. Here, you'll find the Jerónimos Monastery, the Belém Tower and the Museu de Arte Antiga among other attractions. Experts recommend taking Tram 15 from Praça do Comércio for a scenic, 30-minute ride. Keep in mind that many of the sights are closed on Mondays but offer free or reduced admission on Sundays.
