Description

Our Belem Free Walking Tour sets off at the banks of the River Tagus, a pleasant walk along one of the most popular neigbourhoods in Lisbon, the place where the Tower of Belen awaits us. An impressive fortress standing on the waterfront that welcomed sailors upon their return. Explore the stunning Monument to the Discoveries that welcomed Portuguese explorers as they returned from their voyages to the New World and sample the most delicious pastries and cakes in the area.

Our Spanish speaking guide will provide a walking tour through history, one that has left a mark on the city, through the sea route of the Indies Spices. We will hear all about the legends of John II of Portugal and the naval battles of Lisbon.

On the Free Tour around Belem be sure not to miss the city´s jewel: the Tower of Belem. This monument was used as a defense system at the mouth of the Tagus River and during the Third Dynasty the Belem Tower was used as a political prison.

Walk through the old quarter as far as Praça do Imperio where the mighty Mosteiro dos Jeronimos (Jeronimos Monastery) awaits us. This building is a palace located in the heart of Belem built to commemorate the return of Portuguese explorers from their travels to the Indies.

The Praça do Imperio is one of the most incredible fountains in Lisbon. For the last few years it has fused the sound of water with music and lights to make it one of the top ten landmarks worth visiting. Sample the famous custard tarts which are a tradition in this area, they are by far the most sought-after pastries in the entire city and something that makes tourists fall in love with them. Our tour comes to an end at the best-known bakery in Belem.

Add a touch of history, legend and a taste of Lisbon to your trip on this Belem Free Walking Tour and be sure not to miss a single thing.
