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 is an impressive building and well worth a visit. The building’s history and architecture justify the building’s status as a World Heritage site. Tram and bus #15 (in direction of Alges; starting from Praca da Figueira) will drop you on the right side of...More

These include conical pinnacles, rounded as opposed to pointed arches and Mudéjar architectural elements of Moorish and Christian. Stunning Santa Maria Church is awe inspiring. In 1497...More

The sculpture and carvings inside the building are amazing. Also gives a good history of not only the monastery but of Portugal as a whole since the time it was built. Very interesting and worthwhile visit.

I'm not sure if it was the rain, the large queue or the general confusion, but I was very disappointed with my visit to the monastery. Outside it is stunningly beautiful, a huge building that I was excited about wandering round. After waiting in a...More

Very interesting place, and church was beautiful. It was a rainy, blustery day when we visited and this provided a must needed sanctuary.

We stood in the small queue and bought tickets to go in. It was shortly after lunch time. So for us, no pre-booking or pre-purchasing of tickets. I think it might depend on the season. Summer might be very busy & queues... More
