The monastery was really interesting but we were unable to use Belem tower ticket as queue waiting was over 2 hours and if we waited we wouldn't have had time for monastery visit. Having the option of visiting different days if busy with the combo ticket would have been useful

Ticketing and pricing were very accurate with Headcount. The Lisbon Card is worth the money just in terms of the free metro, buses etc.

Simple to buy, I just found it confusing when it came to showing the tickets at the entrance, I had to download the 4 tickets individually in PDF, I should have received the QR codes for all the tickets directly in one email.

it was a cool tower with a cool view but i think it is just too expensive to be worth it. I can not pay 8 euro and still see the cool view from the outside

The Belém Tower has long been a symbol of Portugal’s history, culture, and heritage. Officially called the ‘Tower of Saint Vincent’ (in honor of Lisbon’s patron saint), this notable landmark is a 16th-century fortification on the River Tagus. Serving as a starting point and destination for Portuguese ships and explorers, it was also a ceremonial gateway to the city.

Dive right into exploring this UNESCO Heritage-listed monument and its historic role. Learn about how it protected the city as part of a tripartite defense system and how this fell apart after the Spanish Occupation. With its limestone foundation and traditional medieval architecture, better known as ‘Manueline’ architecture, the most noticeable elements are the twisted ropes that wind around the building – ending in elegant knots – armillary spheres, crosses of the Order of Christ, and other Gothic features. The Tower consists of four stories: the Governor's Room, Kings' Room, the Audience Room, and the vaulted chapel. Upgrade your experience with a Lisbon Card included, which gives you access to several sites like the Jerónimos Monastery, the National Costume Museum, and the National Museum of the Azulejo, along with free transportation.
