We were here on a bright and sunny day in December. The setting is absolutely gorgeous. Make sure to have your tickets ahead of time otherwise the queue can be long.

Torre de Belem is the symbol of Lisbon. You can have nice views when entering the tower. Historically speaking, the navigators would mark it for voyages ahead. Highly recommend to come here when traveling by the waterfront.

There is parking on the other side of the dual carriageway. You have to walk over the footbridge; it's very easy!

There is a whole area of food carts and a market very close. We were on line for the torre de belem and my adult children went to get food and they said it was delicious.

We didn't use the Lisbon card but I did see these being used at the monastery so I assume so (we bought a joint ticket for Belem +monastery)
