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.

Lines were long even early in the morning. So happy we booked with a tour group and had a shorter line. The place in general is stunning. Lots of history, clean washrooms, nice giftshop. Beautiful place to take pictures. Worth the visit

A lot of tourists, and a little expensive but so lovely and peaceful inside. If you're not visiting the monastery it's really not work getting the Lisboa Card, but if you want to go to a few other places then it's worth getting the card...More

Unexpectedly grand and massive structure. Makes one marvel at sixteenth century architectural/engineering skills and sheer breadth of vision. Definitely worth a visit. Especially with the splendid Discoveries Monument just across.

Coud be more than an hour... depends on how much of the history information you want to read, or if you're just looking for a general look around. It's worth going though...

It would be rushed, but you could do it in an hour. But make sure you buy your tickets online before you arrive otherwise you will spend your hour waiting on the line to enter.
