A culmination of the Manueline architecture, this monastery is the most remarkable Portuguese monastic complex of its time and one of the main churches in Europe. Its construction began on the initiative of King Manuel I at the beginning of the 16th century and lasted for a hundred years and was led by a remarkable group of architects / masters of works (note the decisive role of João de Castilho).

Closely linked to the Portuguese Royal House and the epic of the Discoveries, the Jeronimos Monastery was, from a very early age, "internalized as one of the symbols of the nation"
