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.

One of the most beautiful monasteries
Nov 2021
This is one of the most beautiful monasteries anywhere, built in the late 15th century and rightfully one of the UNECSO world heritage monuments. Beautifully restored, it is a delight to the eye. This was the third time I visited the monument, and i enjoyed it as much as the first time. The church can be visited free of charge - make sure to have a look at the tomb of Vasco da Gama. Entrance to the Monastery will cost Euro 10, but there are family tickets....

Must-see for anyone is Lisbon with some minor drawbacks
Nov 2021
Must-see for any traveller to Lisbon. Cloister is amazing and the whole place oozes history. One can only imagine the wonder someone from the 16th century felt gazing at this place.

I would recommend visiting the paid section before entering the church (which is free).

I would also advise paying 12 euros for the joint ticket with the archaelogical museum.

There could be more information about how the monks lived and about the history of the building, and the guards could be nicer, but I don't think these points warrant a rating below five stars.

Too expensive for what you get
Nov 2021 • Couples
10€ for a short walk around a cloister is far too expensive. We were in and out in about 20 minutes.

Order of Saint Jerome
Sep 2021
Opened in 1495, Jerónimos Monastery belonged to the Order of Saint Jerome. It is a miracle that the monastery withstood several natural disasters with minimal damage, including the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. A Lisbon landmark known for its ornate Gothic Manueline style of architecture, the monastery was secularized in 1833 and named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. The magnificent church contains the burial tomb of Vasco de Gama, Portugal’s famous explorer and the first European to reach India by sea. If you only have time to visit one Lisbon landmark, this is it! Best over-all view of the massive monastery is from the top of the Discoveries Monument observation deck, located across the street.

Worth the visit to see so much history in one place
Oct 2021
It's hard to imagine that this place was built in the 1500s. Absolutely beautiful architecture and history. It's a bit confusing when you arrive, there are three lines - one for tickets, one for going in the monastery, and one for the church, which is free. Don't miss the church, it's incredible. We bought the dual ticket for the archeological museum and the monastery, totally worth it.

Interesting history
Nov 2021
We really enjoyed the Manueline architecture of the building and history behind the monastery. Not far from Belem Tower.
