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.

This was originally a monastery, and now the church is open to the public. Unfortunately it is on the main day-trippers route, and when we were there was packed with tour groups. The architecture is simple and superb, with some wonderful stone carvings. And yes, Vasco da Gama's tomb is here.

The architecture is impressive and everything is seemingly hand carved inside. A beautiful piece of history, it should be on everyone's to do list, especially due to its location.

Strange one this. The church itself was beautiful and amazing. However the people and control of them ruined the experience, children playing in the aisles, a lot of flash photography, just general chaviness (if you don't know what this means; Aussie = bogan, US/Canada = trailer trash, not sure on the rest of world). The rating is for the building... More

We visited the monastery in a hot summer day, but being only June, it was not that crowded. It was a nice visit

Easy tram ride on #15E. Although this is a UNESCO attraction, the entrance fee of 10 Euro is steep without much to offer.

Together with friends, we spent 2 hours visiting the monastery and church located in Belém area (Western part of Lisboà, after the 25th of April bridge). We reached the place using E25 tramway. The church itself is amazing (see the tomb of Vasco de Gama) and the cloister is definitely worth seeing. The two-storey cloister gives access to the second... More

This place in Lisbon is famous, but it is not that much really interesting, in my humbled opinion. On the other hand, the area surrounded Mosteiro dos Jeronimos is a nice place, where you can find the famous original "pastel de nata" and nearby you can visit the Belem Tower.
