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.

Visited the cloisters. The architecture was very interesting. I didn’t realize it was free to see the church next door! A good stop while visiting Lisbon.

I loved this place. The stained glass and the interiors are simply gorgeous. I would recommend going by yourself or, if with a group, doing your own solitary exploration and meeting up after.

If history is your thing, visiting the Monastery is crucial to understand Portuguese history and architectural style. Nearby you have the monument to the explorers and the famous Torre de Belem. Don't forget to try the custard tarts !

I consider this attraction to be the highlight of my visit to Lisbon. The intricate designs in the architecture which have an almost lacylike pattern gave me the sense I was in a fairy castle. Not to be missed!

Impressive structure along the Tagus. Walking through the complex gives you sense of the history of both the city and country.

Very beautiful and impressive from the outside. Lovely architecture both inside and outside. Having a guide point out the various features and differences between gothic, and manuelan (sp) features enhanced our experience. When we were there, the queue to the cloisters was quite long (about...More
