I've visited Santa Maria De Belem twice now. The first time it was quite busy and I didn't feel I could fully appreciate this beautiful church with the distractions of chatter and large groups of tourists swarming. The second time I visited we arrived during the Sunday service and whilst we couldn't wander freely around the entire church I much preferred this visit. The choir were in full song when we entered and it was actually really quite moving, I felt I could fully appreciate it as a place of worship rather than just as a beautiful building.
The line can be quite long but it moves quickly and is well managed but I would recommend visiting when it's quieter to really enjoy it.
