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.

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.
