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.

Definitely worth a visit! We queued in the pouring rain with dozens of others under umbrellas, and it was free on the first Sunday of the month. The Monastery is architecturally stunning, well maintained and a pleasant walk around. We were also lucky to get into the church in between services, and it was also amazing. When we came out...

This is a must visit. It's a fine work of gothic architecture. Visit the cloisters and the church. There's an entrance fee for the cloisters.

Everyone goes only into the church as free but the best part is the cloister. It's stunningly beautiful and must see.

If you go to the belem area it is one the things you want to see. Very close to the belem tower only 10-15 min walk. Do see both if in the area

The monastery is located a bit out of town but on the tour bus routes. Free entry is provided although the entry is confusing with several other paid entrances to the museums in the same part. It is well maintained and preserved and worth an hour or so if in that area and/or it is pouring with rain as it... More

Amazing interior!:) the exterior was nice but the interior was even nicer!:) worth the ticket price. The exhibition covering 500 years of the monastery history with reference to world history and Portugal history is good too!

Definitely worth a visit. The monastery is incredible & the history section is so well done. By accident we went on the first Sunday of the month so it was free and consequently there were queues but they moved quickly & it was worth the wait.

This is an exquisite place. We sometimes feel jaded by too many churches, abbeys and monasteries. This one changed that and we would recommend it unreservedly however many religious buildings you have seen in the past.

The Mosteiro dos Jeronimos is a highly ornate monastery that is situated in the Belem district of western Lisbon. This grand religious building was historically associated with the early sailors as explorers, as it was from here that Vasco da Gama spent his last night before his voyage to the Far East. Jeronimos is one of the most decorative churches of Portugal.... More

Staying in Belem

Neighbourhood Profile
Belem
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.
