BELÉM


Just outside Lisbon you will find Belém, a parish that tells you the story of the rise and fall of Portugal. It's our golden age city: once the monumental entrance of Lisbon, the heart of the Discoveries era. If you are into deep history, this is your tour. In Belém you'll understand how tiny Portugal became, for a while, one of the world's biggest powers and empires. How did we make it, how did we keep it, how did we fall? From the greatest achievements to the most shameful events, you'll get the raw story of our country in a beautiful stroll by the Tagus river with some of the best Portuguese tarts at hand.

It includes:

  • Jerónimos Monastery
  • Belém Tower
  • Monument to the Discoveries
  • Rise and fall of Portugal
  • Slave trade
  • Dictatorship in Portugal
  • Pastries of Belém
