    Windy but pretty and on the top you have a great view of the river. Can't see anything from the city.

    Great view on the Tejo river and Atlantic Ocean — especially during the sunset. Very romantic, so don’t come here just on your own. :)

    A must see when in Lisbon. Try to catch a concert.

  • Sally R.

    Pretty place but long queue even with a lisbon card. Strange system inside of lights indicating whether you can go up/down steps that not everyone understood...

    Must go Portugal tourist historical spot

    A wonderful old building, fantastic architecture. Good views across the water and the area around it is scenic. Doesn't get ruined by the tourist presence.

  • Piotr S.

    Pleasant views - numerous tourists and little shade.

  • Gizem D.

    U should at least see it from outside It was really nice

  • Daniela L.

    Beautiful building, but 6 euros for the ticket is a bit overpriced, not much to see inside.

    Like someone crossed a pirate ship with a castle. My inner buccaneer just wept for joy.

    Disappointing. The view is good but not significantly better to the one on the ground. The is very little info, so you won't learn much. You have to queue alot, 5 different times no less.

    Getting here by bike on a sunny day is really great, spectacular view and a taste of summer.

    Beautiful place to visit. But people don't use properly the "traffic lights" so it can get a bit messy.

    Watch out for high tide, waves are unforgiving!

    Pretty cool...

    Ruth Salvadinho · January 18
  • Okro G.

    Worth buying a ticket and climbing to the top.

    Great place to hand around, can be a long line to get in.

    Ruben de Keyser · January 5
  • Victor E. O.

    Nice views of the Tagus river and a cool building to visit. It takes about 40 minutes to visit. Free entrance at the first Sunday of each month.

    A historic monument offering beautiful views of Lisbon and the river

    Rent a speedboat and take a photo from the river!

    Honza Richtr · December 18, 2014
  • Richard R.

    Great view from the tower. Plenty to do in this area. Look to the left on the river and see the bridge. (much like the Golden Gate.)

    Richard Revilla · November 4, 2014
  • Michee L.

    even though the first Sunday of the month is free admission, it is not worth the line up! especially to line up to get in, then to go up a one way spiraling staircase, only to get back down again.

    Michee Lee · October 8, 2014
  • Pieter B.

    Great view, nice tower. Wait at the stairs unless it's green!

    Pieter Braeckevelt · September 19, 2014

    Beautiful piece of history. Lots of tourists. Be strong.

    Fascinating view! Must see in Lisbon

    Nnsrn D · September 4, 2014
  • Sven R.

    You can enjoy a magnificent view from the top of the tower.

    Sven Rottiers · September 4, 2014
  • Ozgun G.

    Cool little tower/castle on the water

    Ozgun G · August 28, 2014
  • Daniel M.

    If you have a ticket already from the Geronimo Monastery, try entering via the "exit" line to save time.

    Daniel Miller · August 23, 2014
  • Antoine B.

    Must see beautiful and great view

    Antoine Boucher · August 15, 2014
  • Patrick C.

    Don't forget to try the traditional 'pastel de nata'

    Patrick Contini · July 22, 2014
  • Stephen M.

    Obey the traffic light system on the stairs otherwise you'll cause congestion on a very tight staircase

    Stephen Morrison · May 27, 2014
  • Nicolas B.

    go on Sundays if u can! It's free from 10am to 14

    Nicolas Berko · March 2, 2014
  • Dave W.

    Free visit on sundays between 10 and 2 pm!

    Dave Wouters · February 9, 2014
  • Bond L.

    Make sure you understand the instructions on how to go up and down the tower!

    Bond Lai · November 18, 2013
  • Anton S.

    Don't waste time and money. It's very tight, crowded, and not so interesting. Go to the contemporary art museum that is across the road and a bit towards to the bridge.

    Anton Stupnev · September 13, 2013
  • Henri A.

    Wow! Great view on the top

    Warning - single staircase is narrow and fancy light/buzzer system to control flow of people is completely ignored by most tourists causing nightmare jams on stairs. Avoid of remotely claustrophobic!

    Alexandra Notay · May 26, 2013
  • Daniele S.

    Go in the end of afternoon. The sunset light will make the tower even more beautiful.

    Daniele Soares · May 15, 2013
  • Andreasz D.

    Not worth the 5 euros to go up.

    Andreasz Diesenreiter · April 20, 2013
  • Stephanie H.

    Shaped like a ship docking itself on the harbor - take a walk along the shoreline and enjoy the view.

    Stephanie H · November 17, 2012
  • TheLex

    Don't be late! The frosty woman at the door is very strict with last entry (30mins before closing time) even if you've already bought a ticket elsewhere in advance

    Defensive tower built in the Manueline style in 1520 by F. de Arruda, originally on an island. One of Lisbon's defining landmarks. See it early morning or late afternoon. Explore the dungeon gallery.

    Jason 64128 · June 19, 2012

    Also known as the Tower of St. Vincent, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the city's finest examples of the Manueline style. Here, you'll learn a lot about the country's nautical achievements. · December 13, 2011
