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.

Huge place, worth a visit.

This is a very large cloister that is two stories high. Delicate carvings and a connection to the adjacent church. Really beautiful on a sunny day.

This monastery is absolutely gorgeous! It is best to arrive early to avoid the big crowd and purchase tickets in advance (or a combined ticket with another historic site like the tower of Belem)

This beautiful monastery and Cathedral in Belem is possibly the most stunning I have even seen and certainly well worth the visit if you happen to like history, culture and architecture and are spiritually inclined. Magnificent and imposing and quite unforgettable.

Got there around noon time, there was a queue for entrance tickets, lines moved quickly and smoothly. Beautiful structure with intricate stone details, absolutely a work of art and a gem. The downside of the tour was the lack of tour guides.. After we bought tickets and got in, there was a small sign the the only tour guides are... More

The Jeronimos Monastery is definitely worth the visit. It is incredibly beautiful and spacious. The cloisters have these amazing pillars with a lot of detail carved into the marble. This was the highlight of our visit to Lisbon.

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.
