About
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.

Top ways to experience Mosteiro dos Jeronimos
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Belém
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 delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.

Amazing

The Monastery is an architectural masterpiece. It is well worth spending afternoon visiting Belem. The Discovery monument and other sights are nearby and the visits can be combined.

A must see in Belem!
Sep 2021
Be aware. You must queue up in one line to purchase your entry tickets and then move to another queue to enter the Monastery. To avoid the tour groups, arrive early. The Monastery is quite lovely and will require about an hour to enjoy the historical site.

The architecture is beautiful
Sep 2021
We were lucky to visit on a sunny day which showed the monastery in all of it's splendour. It is lovely to spend an hour or so here just walking around and enjoying the peace and quiet. We chose to go at the end of the day to avoid the queues and tourist groups. My one grumble would be the staff and lack of communication. We turned up at what we believed to be the entrance to be told to walk 50 meters down the road to buy our tickets. We used a ticket machine to buy the tickets and this could quite easily have been at the first entrance. Staff were a little rude and not vey friendly.

Worth a visit when in Lisbon
Sep 2021
The monastery is a great property to walk around. So much history and the exterior will keep you staring for hours. It is right across the street from the Monument to the Discoveries so you can hit both. The monastery takes about 45 minutes to tour and is something you should plan on doing when visiting Lisbon.

Amazing Architecture!
Sep 2021 • Couples
The architecture is amazing! It’s massive! This was just a lovely little stroll from the water. Warning: the people selling sunglasses & necklaces are aggressive and relentless, they will follow you. Politely declining their purchase offers does not work.

Incredibly beatiful place with very polite stuff. I highly recommend visiting this extraordinary monastery and studing its history.

Exquisitely beautiful historical monastery
Sep 2021
The architecture and beautiful details in nearly every part of the monastery are exquisite. We paid extra to visit the archaeological museum portion on the left side, but honestly, I could have skipped that part and not felt like I had missed too much. I was stunned by the beauty in the building itself. It is fairly massive and quite impressive. The chapel portion can be visited for free. So that is worth a visit even if you decide not to pay the 10 euro entrance fee.

Important: There is a large, very busy street between the Padrao dos Descobrimentos and the Monastery, and we were worried that we would have to walk way down to a bridge we had seen in order to cross. But there is a tunnel under the street. So look for that to avoid a lot of extra walking!

Unique architecture
Sep 2021
Mosteiro dos Jeronimos has amazing architechture, but I thought it would be bigger. It was only one courtyard, so the price was little higher as It should be. There was not allowed to sit on benches and staff was not very friendly. We waited long in queue for tickets, then there was a queue near the entrance and then there was a long queue to the church.

Sadly dissappointed
Sep 2021 • Friends
Its a beautiful piece of portuguese history and architecture. Its stunning detail is breathtaking. However, its €10 each to go inside and explore and very sparse, masks are required throughout even when outside, no sitting allowed. Overall I was dissappointed in the lack of information and barely anything to look at.
Would recommend to visit Lisbon as its full of historical buildings, but would not recommend to attend this.

Unreal architecture!
Sep 2021
I happened to visit during a rain storm which all of the gargoyles were active! If you like gothic architecture, do not miss this. Its a beautiful spot for pictures and a block away from the Pasteis de Belem shop where you will find the famous pastry.
