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.

Really is a must to visit. such as beautiful building and the history and stained glass and art work was really amazing. The old town was the best place to visit and would highly recommend the Monastery

Lisbon is so full of sites related to Catholicism but this is a little different so even if you skip some others, try to get in to see this. May be crowded, though.

you have long queues to get an expensive ticket but to visit the inside of the monastery is quite good. not a lot to see apart from a large cloister but it is the reason why people go to Belem

It would be rushed, but you could do it in an hour. But make sure you buy your tickets online before you arrive otherwise you will spend your hour waiting on the line to enter.
