Belem, a historical neighborhood of Lisbon


Belem is situated where the Tajo River has its mouth to the sea in Lisbon, and that’s why it was the place where the Caravels on Christopher Columbus sailed to discover the Americas. Probably one of the most important historical spots of the city.

Most of the neighborhood was built during the reign of Manuel I of Portugal (1495-1521). He wanted to show the world his imperial power and built monuments and churches, including Belem Tower and Monasterio de los Jerónimos. It also has big streets, palaces, museums, gardens…

It’s really easy to get to the main streets of Barrio de Belem from Equity Point Lisboa, as we’re located next to Restauradores, an important transit hub. You will enjoy our Lisbon Hostel.
