Tour description

Our Belém and the Portuguese Explorers free tour was created to offer you the very essence of the Age of Discoveries. And, of course, the famous pastel de nata. Statue by statue, monument by monument, we will reveal to you the district from where the Portuguese navigators set sail to explore the world. This walk is perfect as an introduction to the Age of Discoveries and we will have many tips and recommendations to share. A spectacular tour to celebrate such a magnificent district. We will visit Belém’s neighbourhood and many of its foremost sites like the Presidential Palace, the Monastery of Jerónimos, the Monument to the Discoveries and the Tower of Belém. Not to mention the scrumptious, mouth-watering pastel de nata. Join us and discover how Portugal became the first global village.

Gaby es una gurú muy especial y cálida. Nos dejó al final junto a un atardecer bello en la Torre de Belém. La información y la ruta estuvieron veniales.
