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.

First advice, come at least half an hour before the opening to avoid the huge queue. If you want to visit the closter and the church, take the left line. If you want to see just the church (no fee), take the right line. The outside of the monastery is very impressive and beautiful (more beautiful than the inside). Inside,... More

Amazing view from outside as well, but the interior is simply amazing. Don't miss the museum about Egypt and the Treasury left to the main entrance.

The Jeronims Monastry is an example of the power that Portugal had in the Discoveries Age. In here you can find some of the most iconic Kings and personalities of Portugal. In front of it you can also appreciate the view of the gardens and the discoveries landmark.

We were absolutely awestruck by the magnificence of this monastery. The architectural work in the Manueline style is stunning.

This monastery it's so wonderful outside as inside (or even more inside)! Built in white stone is so decorated that you will loose in its archutecture. Some tips: last entrance... More

If we were to list our wow moments, visiting the Jeronimos monastery is a big WOW moment. Highly recommend NOT to miss out on visiting this monastery when you go to Lisboa. One hour is not enough to go through the fantastic sights inside the monastery, from the magnificent altars to the burial site of Christopher Columbus but best to... More

This is a beautiful Monastery and a must see if you have never been. I recommend arriving early as the tour groups form long lines. You will want to walk around cloister take many photos, however the inside of the church is also stunning. We do not think it is necessary to get into the second line for the church... More

True masterpiece . and the best timeline of world history I have ever encountered (part of the exhibition to celebrate 500 years of the monastery) ... Despite a long queue of 50 minutes to buy tickets, it did not feel crowded inside. No way to buy tickets on line. No free leaflets in any language. ...

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.
