Belém is famous most of all because it was the departure point for the expeditions of early Portuguese explorers. The district is also graced with two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the fortified Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery, a prominent example of the late Gothic Manueline style. Don’t miss the Monument to the Discoveries—designed to resemble the prow of a caravel, the sailing ship used by explorers—and the Museu Coleção Berardo for modern and contemporary art. You'll also want to sample a delicious pastéis de Belém (custard tart) at Antiga Confeitaria de Belém, founded in 1837.
