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.

At ~15:00 we got in line for the monastry and it took around 15-30 minutes to get in. It's nice and cool inside the enclosed garden and there are places to sit down. Upstairs there's a overview of the church which you can also visit....More
