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.

The monastery is has beautiful views and has great architecture. Staff are friendly and speak different languages to help guests. The church is lovely and celebrates solemn mass. The cloister may be also worth-visiting if further interested in history. Can be reached by bus or tram 15, which you can get from Praca de comercio. The place is worth -visiting... More

It is really a beautiful building with amazing gothic architecture. The crowds were huge but it is something you really have to see in person. One of my favorite things to see in Lisbon.

Fascinating Building with an equally interesting history. This is a must see for Lisbon. Be sure to read up on the history before your arrival!

The 10Euro fee is a bit steep, but the views of the courtyards, walks, church, etc. are unparalleled. Lots of great photo opps here, so if you can visit on less busy days or cooler months, it might be a good idea to avoid shooting around large crowds. Access is easy by the 15E Tram right outside.

It has such an interesting history and amazing view! To entry the Monastery you must pay but to visit the church side is out of charge. And the church side is lovely!

The monastery is a bit barren but this doesn't sully the sanctity of the grounds. I did not tour the adjacent museum. I did tour the beauty of the church. Portugals Westminster abbey. It is a must see.

So beautiful and peaceful. It is free to get in the church but to get inside the monastery you would have to pay unless you buy at the airport a transportation pass that let's you go in for free or with discount to the museum

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.
