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
Very beautiful and colorful specially when it’s sunny. The view is amazing for a footing with beautiful flowers around more »
This has been the highlight of our Lisbon trip. It really is mind blowing! Construction began in 1501 and was completed in 1601. The stone 'lace work' is Incredible! A must visit if in Lisbon. Closed.... 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
