We skipped the massive line to the monastery part and just walked right into the cathedral part - beautiful!! The view down the nave, beautiful ceiling and tomb of Vasca de Gama were highlights!! Do not miss the cathedral - and don't let the huge line for the cloisters/monastery part put you off. The outside is also beautiful. Whole complex is so huge you can't miss it from the bus or tram or walking.

Well, if you are short on time I would advise going to the Chapel and skipping the Monestary because of the huge lines. The church includes tombs of the King and Queen who had it built and Vasco de Gama. This part of the monestary is free and has a lot of interesting information. I would advise paying the €1.50 to see the scarcity. It includes some paintings about St. Jerome and paintings from the life of Christ. If you do go to the monestary (we went about 40 minutes before closing because of the lines) and saw it. The main things are the architecture, which is beautiful and a time line. The timeline is in three parts: The World, Portugal, and the Monestary. I thought that was the best part and you can buy a copy of the timeline in the gift shop, but it is pretty pricy.

We experienced the exterior of the Monastery, however, visited the inside of the overly ornate Gothic style, Church of Santa Maria. A must see if you are in Belem.

Visit this 500 year old structure and walk among the outstanding
stone work. Also view the tomb of Vasco da Gama.

An amazing building, a beautiful church. Make sure that you get a bit before the opening, queues are quickly growing.

Do not visit in in the morning but a little bit later in the afternoon. Like between 15:00 en 16:00 hours

Is a value to take the tram or walk to Belem to visit the monastery. It is huge and take your time. Outside is nearly ready inside is a lot of work.

The church and monastery was included as a part of my city tour. It is breathtaking and one of the highlights of a visit to Lisbon. The enormity of the building was unbelievable and the beauty of the church and historical perspective are not to be missed.

take the free English tour at 11:30 it is worth the time. It lasts almost 90 minutes starting in the amazing church/cathedral and goes through the entire Monastery. It is awesome

This monastery was built during the Manuel’s kingdom. At the time Portugal was quite a rich country due to the trade of spices brought mainly from India. The most important at the time was pepper going 5% of the profits to the king who built the huge monastery with that money. The decorative style is called Manueline - between the Gothic and the Renaissance. Be sure that you visit the church and the cloister – this is one of the most beautiful in Europe. Enjoy!
