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.

A lot of people made a long line, but you do not have to do so if you have a prepaid ticket. You can buy the ticket the museum next to the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. Save time for your enjoyable time!!

There's very little of the monestary that you're allowed to see and it's very, very crowded. I'd recommend "Igreja de Sao Vicente de Fora" in Lisbon instead; costs less, hardly any people and you can roam through the whole monestary. The view from the roof...More

Tip! There is a ticket office in the park just a few meters from the entrance. Buy your tickets there and you can skip the huge line.

Worth a visit to wow at the detail added over the 500+ years. Also has a very useful exhibition explaining the history of the monastery in relation to world and Portuguese history.

I'm conflicted. On the one hand, the cloister is over-rated. It's huge, overly ornate for my taste, and crowd-laden. The line to get in is ridiculous. Tour buses are lined up outside. But it's 2 stories high, large and cool. Some rainspouts are good and...More

We visited on a very hot day. Long line to enter so we went down further to the archaeological museum to get combo tickets. That museum was a fascinating experience in its own right. After that we quickly bypassed the long line to the Monastery....More

Fantastic site with great history. Our group got the 3 site ticket, including the Tower of Belem and the Museum near the Monastery.

As we disxovered traveling through Portugal for several weeks, monasteries, castles, and churches would head the list of sights to see; Jeronimos Monastery was our first experience, and there were tons of other tourists who were there as well. The line to get in was...More

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
