The Belém monastery is one of the most visited sights in Lisbon – and it is popular for a reason.  While its majestic exteriors and church with free entrance are already impressive to see, I suggest you come at the right time of the day and visit also its cloister, a stunning example of the „Manueline style“ .  

While buses and trams of tourists dont always lead you the right way, in this case follow them and join the paid tour.

Fact 1: Tomb of Vasco da Gama

Fact 2: Thers the cloister
