Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Lisbon / Mosteiro dos Jeronimos
Inspired by Vasco da Gama, Mosteiro dos Jeronimos serves as a great example of Late Gothic Manueline architecture. You can tour the church, where several important events have occurred since the Middle Ages. Limestone sculptures inside the church pay homage to historical naval expeditions. Its impressive, ornate architectural style is partly why this World Heritage Site has become famous. The monastery was founded in 1495, though its structure was not completed for more than a century, in 1601. Vasco da Gama is buried here, along with other notable explorers. You can also visit the site's Maritime Museum and National Archeology Museum, as well as the nearby Tower of Belém.

Mosteiro dos Jeronimos Reviews
The Monastery itself is nice, the tickets are 10 Euro, but you can buy them only from the machine and if you pay cash it can return you only less than 10 Euro. And you can’t exchange your banknote... more »
...........needn't have worried, though - it's a splendid, marvellous place from the intricate stonework outside to the nothing-short-of-amazing stonework inside. more »
We went on a Monday, when it is closed. So I cannot speak to the interior of the place. But from the outside, just enjoying the grounds and the architecture, the Monastery is gorgeous! It's worth just looking around the grounds, and I can only assume how wonderful it is inside!
Beautiful and unique architecture. The cloisters are quiet even today. Tip - This place gets very crowded. Go early as soon as it opens to avoid the crowds and to get fantastic pictures that have only you and the monastery.
