Incredibly intricate and stunning Manueline architecture. I've seen my fair share of cathedrals throughout Europe, and this one truly amazed me. It's much more elaborate than the fairly plain monastery at Alcobaca, but both are worth seeing for the contrast. Having a private guide to...More

Such history, amazing architecture and peaceful. We attended a babtism here, such great surroundings, shame some disrespectful tourist feel the need to intrude and film the process, even the priest had to ask them to leave. Well worth a visit....

This is an unfinished monastery with a wonderful medieval gothic architecture. I think it is one of the best one in Portugal.

There is little of interest apart from the magnificent building itself. But this is a must-see for that. Some have asked about parking. There is plenty of reasonably priced, paid parking nearby -- on the streets on the town side of the monastery and in...More
