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.

You get out of the bus in Belem and this monastery imposes the landscape with its stunning architectural beauty. Its very crowded so your best bet is to be here 9 am to avoid crowds. The internal courtyard with fountain has a monastery building around it with rooms with architecture and beauty that leaves you stunned. The church at its... More

We loved the monastery and enjoyed wandering round in the sunshine. The architecture is spectacular and full of interesting details. Belem itself is easy enough to get to and also has other things to see and wander round. The monastery is really spectacular and recommended. I don't know what it would be like on a hot sunny day in August... More

It goes without saying that this is a very impressive monastery and it's located in a very beautiful part of Lisbon - Belem. Getting here is pretty simple, the tram stops outside. There's not really a great deal to see at the monastery, but it's pleasant to walk around for an hour or so. Nearby is an awesome pastry shop,... More

The courtyard of the monastery is gorgeous. Be early to avoid the busses full of groups. We were a bit sad that the ancient library that is on the signs did not exist anymore.

While ornate and pretty it wasn't really my thing. It is hard for me to appreciate such a place but my friend is a self proclaimed "Jesus freak" and she enjoyed it. I just saw too much wasted wealth and find it hard to see Jesus in places such as that.

I'm a lover of architecture and I must admit that after 3 days, everything was beginning to look the same but from stepping off the tram 15 and seeing the side of this place, I was already impressed!! The cloister is beautiful and I got to see two exhibitions. It's an abandoned monastery, so I'm not sure what people expected.... More

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.
