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.

First of all, the white ornately carved facade is impressive although a little worn. The church or monastery stretches along the road and this makes it appear huge. As the resting place for Vasco di Gama, we had to visit as we had actually visited Kerala, the area of India where he landed. He was one of the first explorers... More

Very beautiful. Go there early in the morning before the numerous tourist groups. Enjoyable and stunning. Please note that the WC are in different floors for F and M. I enjoyed the church (free entrance) and do not forget to buy combined ticked with options for Belem tower (12EUR) and also with archeological museum and others.

When you visit the Mosteiro don't forget to go see the museum and the claustro. After the visit stop by Pasteis de Belém right next to it and have a capuccino with a pastel de belém. Your visit will not be complete without it!!!

Every stone is carved in this wonderful monastery.I imagined a more "severe" place for monks and prayers but this monastery is incredibly sophisticated and "rich"; it is really an art piece!

Of all the iconic Lisbon attractions that we visited, this is the most outstanding. The architecture and history is very beautiful and interesting. Do not miss the history timeline which compares World history , Portugal history and Mosteiros dos Jeronimos history simultaneously. It really puts things into perspective!

Mosteiro dos Jeronimos is a must see when you visit Lisbon. Take time to look at the exterior before you enter. It is so ornate & beautiful too. It was quite busy on our visit but it didn't detract from the atmosphere. Top tip: be aware of the beggars & pick pockets!

a place not to miss ... lovely visit, beautiful chapel and very interesting architectural details for a construction style which is not common anywhere else. Take the train from Praca do Comercio, very handy, plan to devote at least a half day and finish a perfect visit combining with the Naval Museum, Belem Tower and DO NOT miss a visit... More
