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.

Astonishing

Definitely one of those places one must see before dying. Amazing architecture, loaded with history and Portuguese pathos.

Nice and beautiful but we expected more of it. And too expensive for the time we were visiting inside it.

Out of the top 3 tourist attraction in Lisbon (Torre de Belem, Monastery of Jeronimos and George's Castle).. the monastery is the most interesting. Great architecture, with lots of details. This is a perfect day trip, and a first thing to do in Lisbon. Especially when combined with Tower of Belem and Pastries of Belem. All are in walking distance... More

This place and grounds are amazing!!! The natural beauty really is fantastic. So effortlessly grand, inside is out of this world. You can visit inside for free -its the right hand side of the paying entrance. The left you pay for the full tour. Had such a lovely time here, will definately be returning

Because the complex is divided into two Museums (archaeology and maritime), and the Monisterio complex itself, it's a bit difficult to get an impression of the whole layout - but it's an impressive Church and the two story cloisters are stunning.

Although the mosteiro seems very large, you only get to visit a small part. When you guy your ticket, you can buy a combo of the Mosteiro and the Torre de Belem. When you do, you skip the line at the other attraction. We did the mistake of going to Belem first (which can only take up to 150 people... More

Aside from a few school groups who were touring at the time, we had the place to ourselves. It was very peaceful and quiet, and we were able to enjoy exploring the monastery. The free audio guides had a wealth of information regarding the architecture and history (just make sure everyone has their ID so no one has to share... More

I didn't know much about this monastery before I went there. I just knew it was on all the lists of "must do's" in Lisbon. I was blown away when I got there. The architecture is beautiful. The entrance fee is a little steep but if you have a Lisboa card the entry is free. It is right next to... More

We liked: It is located on a tram ride out of town. Stunning cloisters, with a level of decoration I had not seen before on such a scale. Walking distance to Belem tower and BCC Adjacent to the famous Belem Pasteis factory/cafe - yum! Warning: Get here early as queues are horrendous at coffee and tea time.

This is a must see of Belem (Lisbon). Everyone comes here to see the grand cloister and architecture. The ticket line is always long. A trick, if you also plan to go to Tower of Belem, is that you go to Tower of Belem first and buy the ticket for two sites (the Tower and the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos), so... More
