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.

This monastery in Lisbon is a must to see. The architecture is amazing. Lots of lovely arches and a museum with a history of Lisbon. The chapel has a peaceful feel with lovely etched glass windows.

Looks good from outside, but the queue to get in was just too long, so we ended up not going in. The outside looks nice and i would have wanted to go in and see it.

Definitely worth a visit but not cheap it gives a good overview of timeframes of the monastery itself and Portugal if you take the time to read all the info in the room dedicated to describing this
