About
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.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Belém
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.

So beautiful. This is my second time here and I noticed that it’s not possible to walk through the garden. Worth the visit!

Very beautiful, and well worth the visit. Do yourself a favor....BUY TICKETS IN ADVANCE AND SKIP THE LINE! The line gets crazy long. I'm not sure I would have visited if I had had to get in that line - it was long.

The history and the architecture are simply amazing. As we were there in November, the off season, we had no lines and no crowds. It is as beautiful as the pictures you see on line.

This is one of the most beautiful monasteries anywhere, built in the late 15th century and rightfully one of the UNECSO world heritage monuments. Beautifully restored, it is a delight to the eye. This was the third time I visited the monument, and i enjoyed it as much as the first time. The church can be visited free of charge - make sure to have a look at the tomb of Vasco da Gama. Entrance to the Monastery will cost Euro 10, but there are family tickets....

Must-see for any traveller to Lisbon. Cloister is amazing and the whole place oozes history. One can only imagine the wonder someone from the 16th century felt gazing at this place.

I would recommend visiting the paid section before entering the church (which is free).

I would also advise paying 12 euros for the joint ticket with the archaelogical museum.

There could be more information about how the monks lived and about the history of the building, and the guards could be nicer, but I don't think these points warrant a rating below five stars.

10€ for a short walk around a cloister is far too expensive. We were in and out in about 20 minutes.
