“vasco da gama”(377 reviews)
“belem tower”(303 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.

We visited in December so, although there were still quite some tourists, the queue to enter wasn’t so bad. The monastery is fascinating with amazing stone and tile work, really interesting place. The adjacent church was impressive too. Would have been nice to have a...More

This is an old monestery that houses the tomb of Vasco de Gama. Long lines and not sure that it's worth the wait if you don't have advance tickets.

Jeronimo's Monastery is a MUST see site in historic Lisbon (Lisboa). The exquisite beauty of this site cannot be underestimated. Certainly not a surprise given the importance of the monastery to Portuguese history. My suggestion is to arrive early in the day, purchase a ticket...More

This seminary features amazing examples of the exquisite religious carvings that distinguishes Catholic Churches throughout Europe. We were there on a weekend, so the lines for tickets were fairly long.

Its a beautiful and old church worth visiting, more than 500years old.The monastery is one of the most prominent examples of the Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline style of architecture in Lisbon. It was classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the nearby Tower of Belém, in 1983.
