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.

Jerónimos Monastery is one of the most prominent examples of the Portuguese Late Gothic style of architecture in Lisbon. The construction of the monastery and church began on 6 January 1501, and was completed 100 years later. It’s located next to Belém tower and Planetarium....More

Great to wander around and beautiful architecture. We got a joint ticket with the museum, which was great. However, I will advise, in comparison to other museums and local sites, it’s a fair amount more expensive. But it’s something worth seeing!

I’d have to say of all the major attractions I visited in Lisbon, this would be the highlight. The monastery itself in one word is stunning and the adjoining church is equally stunning. How they built such splendour defies logic. I saw some people in...More

I work right there, so this monastery is my daily view. It is a real pleasure to work side by side with something so beautiful and magestic. The monastery is quite impressive both outside and inside. Don't miss the cloister.

This is a very large and impressive structure with lots of history and stories of interest. It is attractive from a distance and close up. This is a very popular site and expect to have crowds. It is well worth your time to see it.

Like everyone who visits Lisbon, I also headed for Belem and the Jeronimos monastery. Yes, it is an impressive example of Manueline architecture and embellishment. Yes, the cloister is wonderful. But: the queue is bad (I was lucky to visit relatively off-season, in November, so...More

Beautiful architecture, but if you have to stand in the long lines during high season you may lose some appreciation. Make sure to go into the free cathedral area to see the tomb of Vasco Da Gama. There is some beautiful tile work in some...More
