No expense was spared when they built this masterpiece of Manueline and gothic architecture in 1502, which was inspired by Vasco da Gama who is buried here with other great navigators of the past.

humbling, beautiful, this place takes you right into history. The architecture of the churches and monasteries are astonishing to a person brought up in the simpler world of the US

A must see! Splendid architecture in beautiful Belem. Only pictures do this church justice. The stone work is breathtaking. If you want the senior discount, be sure to have your passport with you. The lady who sold the tickets was a stickler.

We got a really good impression if Mosteiro dos Jeronimos during our visit in summer. unfortunately the queue to enter the monastery was too long and as we don't like to wait for hours, we got the impression just from outside. We fetched the inside impression from folders and from the web as our alternative.

I had not looked up a head of time what this place looked like and when we got off the trolley (15) I was just amazed! It is absolutely stunning! Well worth the trolley ride out! Don't miss this if you go to Lisbon. We purchased the Lisbon card and that made the trolley ride free as well as the... More

This monastery and the attached church are well worth visiting. The carving of the columns is incredible and the church has a beautiful interior. The church also houses the tombs of the great navigator Vasco da Gama and the historian poet - Camoes.

An impressive building with huge spaces. A must if you are in Belem. I would suggest doing a walking tour of Belem for at least half a day including the pastries, Discovery Monument, Tower etc. You can see them from the outside but the walk is nice

While we passed by with the train to Cascais we saw this building and went a other day to Belèm to visit it and to taste the pasteis. The church is for free and very nice to see. A bit busy with loud tour guides, but it is one of the highlights of Lisbon. After that we doubted whether we... More
