We read the reviews of this place and decided to give it a visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit where we spent more time than at the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos. This place is absolutely underrated Asa place to visit in Lisboa. It costs 5 Euro and is worth it. The architecture is lovely, the tile work incredible, the small religious... More

First you can visit the church and at the left side you will find the monastry. It is big and gives a good impression of how the monks lived there. The beautiful tiles you will find all over this place. You must be a bit intersted in this because it is a fair part of the museum. You can also... More

In my opinion this is the best thing to see in Lisbon, if you like this type of thing :) The church is impressive and the stonework at the mosteiro itself is quite amazing. The amount of detail is breathtaking. There weren't big queues when we went, at about 16:00, but we had bought a combined ticket at the nearby... More

Totally unexpected experience, well worth the cost, time & exercise in climbing all the steps to the fabulous roof top views. The rest of the floors have interesting history to see and read about.

Building is in great shape, great museum. Cloisters are serene, cistern interesting. Not crowded at all. And above it all, the fabulous views from the roof. Very reasonable entrance fee.

The blue tiled walls are absolutely fabulous and should not be missed by any traveler to Lisbon. An underappreciated gem - we had the place nearly to ourselves.

This is probably the best place in Lisbon to enjoy sunsets. The location on the hill side opens up great views on the sun going down over Lisbon's version of the Golden Gate bridge, the white stone building and plaza make a perfect backdrop, the trees add some colors, they set up a summer cafe when I was there in...

While the museum itself is interesting and the architecture of this old monastery is impressive, the views from the rooftop are what make a visit worthwhile. The tall white columns and steeples make your photos look like they were taken in Greece! And right nearby the National Pantheon, which you can see from the roof as well.
