“Historic fort”
Review of Torre de Belem

Torre de Belem
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Nice view, and an awesome construction. This is a defense tower at the bas of the Tejo river. Very old construction that shows some of the history of Europe and Portugal.

The setting on the seafront is very pleasant and the restaurant itself is modern and attractive. The food is reasonably priced and good quality.

Situated within the fish market area, this tower is apparently a replica of its namesake in Lisbon. Climb to the top, where there is a view over the rooftops of Mindelo, useful for orientation around the city. Be careful though, if there is a strong wind, not to walk out on one of the exposed sides without ensuring you have a steady handhold!

The space inside the tower, can be used for exhibitions - on our visit a showing of black and white mardi gras photos.

This tower is not a marvel by itself but it is located in the most interesting area of Mindelo so it is worth getting to it . The Fish Market , the colonial buildings, the stores ..... everything is nearby !
