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

"Super tolles Team!! Es war sehr witzig und informativ. Wir wurden gut versorgt mit viel Wein und Leckereien (Cracker, Wurst, Käse) Das Segelboot ist sehr schön und man sitzt durch die Polster überall gemütlich. Es war sehr kalt, trotz Sonne und 20 Grad! Also am besten die angebotenen Decken annehmen!"

"Super ochtend met 5 personen op een mooi en goed onderhouden zeilschip met bekwaam personeel. Langs veel monumenten met boeiende en enthousiaste uitleg van de schipper. Zeer geschikt als je op doorreis bent en in korte tijd met Lissabon wilt kennismaken, maar ook interessant om in alle rust vanaf het water veel over de stad te horen met een lekker glas wijn erbij. Door de sterke stroming hebben we stuk gezeild met ondersteuning van de motor en ik heb zelf ook kwartiertje aan het roer gestaan. Echt een aanrader!"

"Despite living and knowing about Lisbon mostly, the tour was very pleasant, I learned a lot about certain details that I did not know. Our guide, Alex, was simply the best. Very talkative and friendly. I highly recommend it, even for those who already know Lisbon well, only the pleasure of boating on the Tejo River is very good. The tidbits and wine were also delicious and the boat very beautiful, being this a well equipped and comfortable yacht."
