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.

An amazing old monestary that always has a long queue outside it that confuses many people. Simply go and see the church and it is impressive enough. You can walk up without queue and just enter for some amazing styles from the period and great...More

Beautiful monastery at the end of tram 15. For those without tickets do not queue at main gate but go and buy your ticket (same price) at the entrance located on the left of main entrance (hardly anyone). Enjoy!

Interesting historical place. It is definitely worth the visit. The church has very nice architecture. You can also see there Vasco Da Gama’s tomb.

It is not an exaggeration to say that this monastery is the most beautiful building in Lisbon. The ornate facade itself is a must-see. This is the best place to appreciate the best of Manueline architecture.

We toured this monastery and the lovely gardens with our private driver guide who also made a point of ensuring that we sampled the exceptional custard tarts baked fresh at the famous pastry shop nearby.

Well worth a visit. However it’s so popular either go early (it opens at 10am) or be prepared to queue for some time. There are masses of tour groups which arrive at opening time. So, get there at 9.30 and line up to beat them...More
