Description

Immerse yourself in the history of this port district as you join us on the Belem Tour. Located in Lisbon, Belem has been the epicentre of many controversial tales, important revolutionaries, the dreaded secret police, the location where Nazi gold was kept, the slave trade, etc. Stories that our English speaking guides will unfold without leaving a single detail out.

The best gems in Belem will not go unnoticed during our walking tour: the Jeronimos Monastery stands out over all the other monasteries in Lisbon mainly because of its architecture and large cloister; and the Tower of Belem built to protect the city with cannons and trenches and later used as a lighthouse and customs centre. Both have been declared UNESCO World Heritage monuments.

Learn how the first rhinoceros set foot in Portugal all the way from India, how explorers who conquered the world departed from the waters of Belem and all there is to know about the dark history surrounding the slave trade.

The Belem Tour also has a touch of sweetness about it as we will taste the most famous cinnamon and cream tarts in Portugal. Simply irresistible!
