The Treasures Of Belem

 

 

Overview:

Lisbon’s district of Belém is home to 2 of the most popular highlights of Portugal: the Tower of Belém and the Jerónimos Monastery, both included in this privately guided tour.

 

Description:

Meet your private, fully-licensed guide at the entrance of the Jerónimos Monastery, and with priority access tickets, you will be able to enter this vast gothic monument quickly.
Once inside, let your guide tell you all about the history of this architectural masterpiece and how it was used back in the day by the monks. After a fun-filled visit of the monastery, you will also get inside the church where Vasco de Gama, the famous 16th century explorer (and first European to reach India by sea), and Luis de Camões, a famous poet, rest in peace for eternity.

Head out to the world famous Pasteis de Belém bakery where the pastries of the same name were born. Follow your guide inside the pastry to witness the making of these sweet treats.

You will then get to the sail-shaped Discoveries Monument, dedicated to Portugal’s Golden Age. With the figures of the country’s most famous navigators, you will learn even more about these heros of the nation.

After a 15-minute walk, you will reach the Tower of Belém, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and probably the most iconic monument of Lisbon. No need to go inside this empty fortress as the most fascinating parts are outside. Listen to your guide as he/she tells you what it was built for and the stories behind the daring architecture and decoration.

To keep the children engaged and entertained throughout the tour, they will each get a fun-filled game booklet.
