Private Walking Tour: The Manueline Art and a Custard Tart


Discover the new found lands where the navigators arrived and from where they got back bringing so many exotic products, through the eyes of a monument dedicated to all these conquests.
Travel back in time until the XVI century and delight yourself by looking at the Belém Tower, which lays on River Tagus' light blue waters.
After visiting the magnificient Saint Jerome's Monastery, the jewel of Manueline Art in Portugal, taste the local crunchy custard tarts from the XIX century, seasoned with one of the favourite spices navigators brought from Asia: cinnamon.
To give it a big finale, check all territories where the Portuguese arrived in a huge world map at your feet, by the Monument to the Discoveries - the caravel made of stone looking at the River flowing into the Atlantic Ocean.

Note: We can always try to adjust the starting times.

A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Marta of Belém Tower, Jerome monastery and cathedral, and the monument to the Discoverers. The sweet finish was a delicious stop for the special Belém pasteis da nata. Marta was welcoming with interesting and informative explanations that brought the history of the Belém area alive.
