Find out how the Portuguese became the first global power in our Belém Free Tour! Join a great introduction to the country’s Age of Discovery and see a couple of Lisbon’s most visited monuments while walking along the river: the Jerónimos Monastery and the Belém Tower.
We begin in the Gardens of Afonso de Albuquerque, a vice-Roy of India and the mastermind of the Portuguese in the East, before diving into our best-known sweet: the pastel de Belém, pastel de nata or, simply, nata. Shortly after comes the Jerónimos Monastery, a Unesco World Heritage Site that mixes Christian and pagan symbols to celebrate the Portuguese Age of Discovery.
There’s a lot we share before we arrive at the Padrão dos Descobrimentos, especially the importance of the country as a maritime power back in the day! We’ll follow the shores of the calm Tagus river ending very close to the Belém Tower, with views over the river and the 25 de Abril bridge. Join and don’t miss many of the must see places in Lisbon!
