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 a really beautiful building and the museum that is next door is worth seeing. When we arrived there was a horrendously long queue so we went into the museum first and we were very pleased to discover that you could get tickets...More

Despite having to spend 30 minutes in the queue to get tickets (and later on the queue time was probably double that) it was well worth the wait. It's spectacular inside & there's lots to see.

The cloister is definitely worth a visit: take it slowly and enjoy the time! There are several exhibits which deserve to be looked at. Then follow with a visit to the church and the tomb of Vasco da Gama.

We went in January and it was very cold in the Cloister. You can use the Youth Card to get a reduced ticket.

As the other reviews say, the architecture is very impressive... however there isn't loads to see inside. The history wall and the tomb were interesting thanks to the historical information but the rest could have been more descriptive. The queue looked long but moved quickly....More
