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.

There is a free entrance to the church but that is usually a long line. With the free entrance/line you cannot see the 'mosteiro' itself. We also visited the paid entrance and it's worth it!!! Very beautiful and you can also enter the church from above so if you decide to do the paid entrance, do not go to the... More

In a country full of amazing Churches, Mosteiro de Jeronimos can be most impressive. Also take your time to see Belem, with lots of beautiful museums and architecture. Dont forget to eat one pastel de Belem, just next door.

Like the Torre Belem, very evocative of past glories and well worth visiting. Beautiful inner courtyard with an upper walkway off which there is a room with dates & photos/paintings and comments relating the world/European and Portugese history. Very clear and well documented.

What a stunning place, on arrival the fantastic facade with lovely garden and fountain sat in front of the main building. There is a very large queue for the church as this is free, please go to the left of the main queue and pay 6 euros to see the cloisters. It is well worth it as the architecture is... More
