Spring in Belem, Portugal

Sunday, 15 April 2012

If any of you are looking for a place to visit this spring, Belem in Portugal is also another perfect destination. It is only a few minutes tram ride from Lisbon. What we did was actually just a day trip, as our main destination on this trip was Lisbon.

To get to Belem from Lisbon, you must take Tram Number 15 by the Rossio Station which is just around the Praca da Figueira.
Padrao dos Descobrimentos ( Monument to the Discoveries)- about 20 minutes walk from the Tram stop.
The Belem Tower- few metres away from The Monument to the Discoveries
Entrance fee: 4 euros in 2010, maybe more now
Opening times are : 10AM-5PM (Oct.-April), 10AM-6:30PM (May-Sept.), Closed Mondays
Mosteiro dos Jeronimos
- a UNESCO World Heritage Site and inside lies the tomb of Vasco de Gama.
Lunch at Antiga Capsula for authentic grilled sardines and octopus.



When in Belem, you should not miss out on the best Pastel de Nata from Pasteis de Belem.

Rua de Belem, No 84 a 92
1300-085 Lisboa
