“What's the big deal?”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

There's a huge church and monestary, but most tourists seem to go for the pastries. I tried them too. They were OK, but nothing special and certainly not worth the wait and awful service.

“Must see”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

This place is more than 500 years, if you come to Lisbon and don't visit it, it's like going to Rome and don't go to the Vatican

I loved the riverside space and the Tower of Belem is just outstanding! And of course, the "pastels de belem" are delicious!

“You must go here”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

The famous pastries are awesome! Not like any other versions served around Lisbon. The monastery is great too. Especially liked the cloisters.
