“vasco da gama”(350 reviews)
“belem tower”(290 reviews)
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.

Very impressive looking monastery. Unfortunately, there is a very long queue. Also, during our visit there was a funeral, so access was very limited.

We were told the day before our visit to get a combo ticket at the archeological museum next door. With it, we saved a lot of time and went right to the head of the line. Beautiful cloister; didn’t go into the church.

The tram and buses stop outside. This is the best way to arrive. The fascade is ornate and a must photograph. Entry fee is payable to enter, but worth it.

Besides housing the remains of Vasco de Gama, the entire of this church is so different, it really needs to be seen.
