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.

We visited this majestic cathedral on a rainy, windy, cold and damp Sunday, last month. It was not overly crowded probably due to weather conditions, but it was very dark inside and yet it held a fascination for this casual visitor. Being able to see the stained glass windows, the magnificent organ, thwe tomb of Vasco da Gama, and the... More

I have been here twice and I am always enchanted by the beauty of this place, especially the Cloisters. You'll find the tomb of Vasco da Gama and Camões here, several Portuguese royalty, too.

Just WOW! What a place! The monestary is absolutely incredible! The architecture here is just wonderful – I literally fall short of superlatives to explain how incredible the architecture was. Only point is that make sure you factor in a lot of time in order to get inside as the queue’s are incredibly long. But please don’t miss out on... More

Worth seeing the Monastery and church - archeology museum is "meh." Church is beautiful and the grounds of the monastery are worth the fee.

This building is magnificent. It was also popular, even on a very windy, rainy November day. I cannot imagine the summer time congestion. But for historical reasons, it is important to see. The style of the work, is a unique and important treasure, as well as understanding the importance of the location after the 1755 earthquake. You can buy a... More

A building with a fascinating history. Walking through it and observing the magnificent detail is an amazing experience. I recommend the visit. The views when you are queueing outside are great which helps to pass the time in high season.

From the moment we arrived at this delight to the eyes, we could see how intricate every inch of this place is. An endless supply of original artists designs encompass its walls. Each area inside the Monastery dedicated to different individuals - detailed from its arches down to the delicate hands of each statue. This place is unlike any other.... More

Staying in Belem

Neighborhood Profile
Belem
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
