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 and chapel of Geronimo‘s quite pretty. Chapel especially is worth the visit. The stone carving around the interior of the monastery with the gargoyles and pillars is also worth the visit. The azulejo murals in the refectory were quite well preserved. We went...More

Sounds cliche, but in this case, it's all true. You might wait a while waiting to get into the monastery, but wow, once you do, the place will amaze. We also saw Alcobaca, Batalha and Tomar during our visit, all incredible, Jeronimos stands to be...More

We did make the queue in this sunny November weather, but it was worth the time wasting there. It is beautiful ! Don't expect a smile from the cashier or even a greeting.... Anyway.... Go for it

Really enjoyed! Followed Rick Steve’s advice and stayed to the right to go into the church for free. Beautiful architecture. Reminded me of a more sedate La Sagrada Familia. Gypsies hung around outside trying to sell crap - not a fan of that.

Lisbon's top Tourist site. Enjoyed walking around and viewing the building and exhibits. Can be very crowded but it is in the Belem district with numerous restaurants and a pretty park across the street.

We paid to get into the monastery and to be honest it was only worthwhile for me as I got half price student discount. There isn’t much to see inside and the most impressive part is the chapel which is free. The €10 entrance might...More

Just walking in to the cloister you can imagine the quiet and serene atmosphere created here for the monks. Surrounding that peaceful garden and fountain is an intricately carved portico in two levels. The detail is amazing. Currently there is an exhibition about the history...More

It is simply stunning inside - highly ornate and cool (literally!) The queue is long at the monastery itself but you can also get the tickets at the museum next door about 100m down where there is almost no queue - little known fact but...More

If you are in Lisbon, you have to take the bus/tram to Belem. Nt for the tower or the monument, but for the monastery. What a fine and elegant piece of art . We were really impressed.

This monastery of Manuelino rythm is a really impressive architectural achievement, which at the same time makes obvious how much power was concentrated during the medieval era in the hands of the religious "regiments". Equally impressive is the Church at an absolute representative of Manuelino...More

Yes, the church is right at the entrance of the Monastery (and houses similar architectural elements - engravings etc including Vasco De Gama's tomb). There is an archeology museum beside the entrance as well (Entrance fee... More

If you are visiting the monastery you may also be planning to go to the Belem Tower which is a ten minute walk along the river. There is also the Archaeology Museum and the shop where the Pasteis de Nata custard pies... More
