Added to that the tranquility of this authentic neighborhood - if you
are a little bit off the tourist trail, the proximity of the Tage which
offers great walking or cycling, efficient transport, which allow you to
reach Lisbonne within a half an hour, as well as the establishment of
several museums and contemporary art centers: all this makes Belém an
ideal destination to enjoy all the city's assets. "Splendid jewel of stone", as described by Fernando Pessoa, the tower of Belém was erected in the 16th century to protect the entrance to the port of Lisbonne. "This tower is a true lace," the poet adds, "and a lace of superior quality." Indeed, the visit of the tower is a wonder, and an invitation to travel: the Moorish influence is strongly felt. During the school holidays, try to arrive early enough in the morning: the influx can be important. It is the same for the Jeronimos Monastery: the queue can seem very long, especially in direct sunlight. But the latter is really worth waiting for: built in the 16th century by King Manuel I to celebrate the return of Vasco de Gama from his first trip to India, it is a true manifesto of the Manueline style. The church of Santa Maria, which is reached before entering the monastery, shelters the tomb of Vasco de Gama and the poet Luis de Camoes. The cloister - a splendor - houses the tomb of Fernando Pessoa. But Belém is not only the exaltation of the glorious Portuguese past. It is also the celebration of the arts in all that they have most modern and living, testifies to the installation in 1992 of the cultural center of Belem, not far from the monastery. This building with a contemporary and pure architecture, signed Vittorio Gregotti and Manuel Salgado, hosts many artistic events: exhibitions, concerts, etc ... And it is still in Belem, on the banks of the Tage, that the brand new MAAT Art museum, architecture and technology, set in 2016 its elegant silhouette, delicate as a wave.
