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 a magnificent ancient place with beautiful architecture. It's amazing how every column was craved from stone in a unique way. Also this is where delicious pasteis de nata was invented!

The Church (free) next door is grand and the monastry is a beautiful building. Very peaceful inside and a great place to visit. I only wish we got the free guide to learn more about the place.

Impressive architecture and informative plaques. I would suggest arriving early. Situated in Belem, which is very nice in itself.

We had a Lisboa card which meant free transport to Belem from central Lisbon (train) and free entrance to this beautiful building. However, the card does NOT allow you to jump the queues (implied in blurb) - you have to get a ticket the same...More
