Join this wonderful tour to Belém where you’ll find an ensemble of iconic architecture and monuments related to the Age of Discovery.
You will take part in a fascinating circuit that will feature several historic monuments in this emblematic area of Lisbon. The whole way to Belém is along the riverside, so you can expect an extremely pleasant journey full of light, beautiful landscapes, and good vibes. It was from here that many of the great Portuguese explorers embarked on their dangerous and ambitious voyages turning Portugal into the very first global empire.
Three of the main highlights of this tour will be the Belém Tower, the Monument to the Discoveries and the Jerónimos Monastery, the 25th of April bridge, the docks (marina), the Lx Factory, the Architecture and Technology Museum and the Electricity Museum.
To finish this sailor promenade, there’s a crucial ritual that you can´t miss: tasting the famous “Pastéis de Belém” (custard tart). As soon as you taste it you’ll understand the reasons for the never-ending queues at the door.
