Owner description: 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 place is beautiful! I got there around closing, so I couldn't go to see the views, but inside I was able to get to and the surrounding grounds. I heard the view from the top is the best place for viewing 360 degrees. I can't comment, as it was closed when I was there. But if you enjoy European church architecture and religion, you will enjoy this place. I'm not religious and I found it worth it.

Such a shame it is now all museums and no longer an actual working Monastery. The building itself is incredible and worth looking at!

We visited Jeronimos Monastery in the end of September. It was pretty long line to get inside and it was very hot. There are 2 lines: one for the church itself and another where you have to buy a ticket to Monastery. We were able to find free parking nearby, just gave 3 euros to “ parking manager”.

The cloister & the refectory are highlights of a visit to Jerónimos. Get there early hopefully ahead of the tour groups

Located near the river and a number of other monuments and parks, you could spend all day around Jeronimos. Some pro-tips. The monastery is beautiful on the inside and out. See the courtyard and chapel on the inside. There may be very long lines so plan accordingly. In the summer it may be very hot. Wear comfortable shows and bring water. Plan to see the monuments nearby too, so budget lots of time. Take an uber in (very cheap) or public transit. We ubered over after riding Tram 28. There are some stairs to climb
