About Belém Tower

Belém Tower is a fortified tower located in the civil parish of Santa Maria de Belém in the municipality of Lisbon, Portugal. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (along with the nearby Jerónimos Monastery) because of the significant role it played in the Portuguese maritime discoveries of the era of the Age of Discoveries. The tower was commissioned by King John II to be part of a defence system at the mouth of the Tagus river and a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon.

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"Our trip with the Lisbon River Sights was a memorable family experience. One, which will be cherished forever, due to its significance. A long awaited family reunion that was especially enhanced by our host. Our skipper, besides being a very knowledgeable guide, is an experienced sailor, and sympathy in person. The beverages and tasty delicacies provided were a perfect “starter” to a fabulous lunch on the Docks. I will definitely travel again, but this time for a romantic sunset trip. A Five star experience."
