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.

Mosteiro dos Jeronimos reviews
Fascinating place, especially enjoyable as it was virtually empty. Great for taking pictures and having a wonder. more »
Fascinating monastery, great for photographers, multiple levels, interesting multi-century architecture, the showow-play is great for photography earlier in the day or later in the afternoon... more »
Lovely site to see. With a history going back centuries, it is one of the oldest extant sites in Lisbon. The facilities consist of lovely architecture and beautiful artwork. The only surprising thing was that the site itself is rather small. From the outside it looks large, but most of the building is taken up by the museum next door. Still, worth the price of admission!
Beautiful! This was such a quiet tranquil place, when you enter the cloister it is as if you have left the city it's so tranquil and the carvings leave you in awe they are so magnificent. Then you enter the actual church and its breathtaking a real wow moment. I would highly recommend a visit to see the sheer beauty of this place
