Is the line too long to go to the monastery and cloister? If so, pop over to the church. It's FREE! Large columns hold up the church and make you take a stand and notice. The famous Vasco Da Gama is buried here too as...More

The pillars are beautifully carved and the old badges from the ships are up on the ceiling, bit difficult to see. Vasco de Gama's tomb is also nicely carved

All of these churches are incredibly beautiful and people in Portugal are still very found of their monuments so they are well taken care of.

I had looked for it on web site of the church, I don’t speak portuguese, but I’ve understood that it is from 10-18:00 hours daily, except sundays, when the visit is only until 16:00 hours. This is in summer time.
