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
Il monastero è realmente imponente, un colpo d'occhio che ti mette soggezione, una visita che merita assolutamente. more »The monastery is truly impressive, a glance that puts you in awe, a visit that absolutely deserves.
Super lieu, pas donné le prix de la visite Mais c'est jolie. À faire je le conseille quand même. Attention très fréquenté more »Great place, not given the price of the visit But it's pretty. To do I recommend it anyway. Very busy attention
If you can, get there about 10 minutes before opening as the line will otherwise be very long. If you have a student ID with you, you will pay less. It's best to come here in the morning as you avoid crowds of people and can take beautiful pictures without thousands of people on it. The ticket machine is easy to use. Not wheelchair accessible.
A unique monastery in a unique style. Its not just for tourists so you can see weddings, christenings and mass as they have always occurred. Evening mass on Saturday is quite popular.
