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.

This is the star attraction of Lisbon and would visit the church which has no line and is beautiful. It has the remains of Christopher Columbus and elephants inside the church. Inside the structure is moorish and main altar is modified later . It is...More

This monastery is one of the busiest sites to visit in Lisbon, so go early in the morning or late in the day. It is a wonderful oasis. Take some time to just relax in the courtyard, tune out the other tourists, and spend some...More

From the outside this monastery is nice but not that special. So enter to understand why this is on the world heritage list. Long lines form at the main entrance but you can buy tickets at other sites as well and save the long wait...More

One of really good places in Lisbon to visit and a good monestary with history. Will give you a nice and relaxing feeling, specially if you are going there on a hot day. Recommended place.

If you are staying in central Lisbon you need to plan your visit as the Monastery is outside the main tourist area. It is very crowded but the queues move pretty quickly. The building is magnificent and it would be a pity to miss seeing...More

I must see if you are visiting Lisbon. Beautiful architecture. The line moved quickly and is worth the wait.

Crowds can be nuts, but once you're in there, you realise it was worth the aggravation. The architecture is amazing. And the church.. sure Europe has a ton of amazing churches but this one is really something special. You walk around and you can feel...More

Amazing place ! Very beautiful and in good shape. The line was long but kept moving (we waited around 40 minutes to enter, so not that bad); it was worth the wait.

This was a must-see if you like medieval architecture. Be warned that the tram journey from the city centre is very slow and you will have to stand as it is packed. If you have mobility or stamina issues, get a taxi.

Get there early to avoid the worst of the queues. It's a wonderful place. Entry to the monastery is 10 euros, but it's free to visit the chapel next door (do this after the monastery). Vasco De Gama's tomb is here.

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

I agree that if you have one day in Lisboa, the monastery isn't worth it. It's not a priority—center your time on the city itself, the Alfama district or exploring Chiado. If you do to this area, I recommend the Torre de... More
