This place is incredible and it might be the #1 attraction in Lisbon, actually Belem, but it is fairly small. It was built sparing no expense and is so well preserved it looks like it is 30-40 years old. The church is the most amazing part, and it is free, but spend the 10 euros to see the monastery as...

Pardon me for my lack of knowledge on history, but in my personal opinion this place is very beautiful.

Well Preserved Monastery, and museum of archeology in the same complex. It is over 500 years old and it is a World Heritage Site. A very peaceful and serene environment in the monastery.

Located write opposite the coast of Tagus and in the heart of Belem this monastery displays very detailed and stunning Portugese Gothic Architecture. It also has the National Archaeology and Maritime musuem. Its worth spending couple of hours in that area, walking by the coastline and seeing the 25 de Abril Bridge, monument of the discoveries or walking down the... More

With an exquiste and serene cloister, the Mosteiro has to be the top attraction in Lisbon. Having visites many such places in Italy, it remains among the most beautiful seen. Don't miss it.
