This is a fantastical building, which looks incredible from the inside. We were there in December, and the queue was quite large, perhaps an hour to get in. Having said that, it was worth it. As soon as you pay and enter you are met with the awesome stone sculpture work of the cloister, which being on two levels is very inspiring. This building is obviously continually looked after and compared to most monuments in this country it shows.
Also, the history timeline of the monastery, Portugal and the world were very impressive - it really helped to set the scene. It could however have done with more explanation. I found myself looking at incredible stonework, paintings and stained glass, unsure what I was looking at and its significance. I bought the guidebook, so have an ongoing opportunity to review the history, but I would have liked to know more at the time.
This is a must see as far as I am concerned.
