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. Our Lisbon road trip planning tool makes visiting Mosteiro dos Jeronimos and other Lisbon attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

The courtyard of the Monastery is very calm and beautiful. The stone carvings are fine and delicate . Well worth a visit but it is important to understand that you first need to buy your tickets from the machines in the entrance to the Archaeological Museum before joining the queue to enter the Monastery. There are no signs to warn you of this and we saw numerous people being turned away after being in the queue for quite some time.
Simply stunning piece of architecture! All round spectacular views. The entrance is free if you have Lisboa card. The queue is much shorter if you have Lisboa card you can enter it straightaway. It is very close to Belem tower so make sure to visit both when in the area! A must visit attraction in Lisbon.
