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 truly fabulous building and a statement. Sadly when we visited it was under some repair and a full view was not possible.

We were waiting for a while in the long line. Then a local told us that you can get the tickets inside the museum next to the monastery and avoid the line using the fast lane. This saved us a lot of time!! ;-))
