Completed in 1601, it took a century to build this stately, mind-numbingly beautiful church and monastery. Its architecture is known as the Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline; this, and other important features, made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Its highlights are:

  • Ornate Manueline south portal by Joao de Castilho
  • The Axial portal is noted for its evident signs of transition from the Gothic style to Renaissance
  • The transept's unsupported vault gives rise to the illusion that it is floating
  • Six 25-metre-highoctagonal columns of intricate Renaissance decoration
  • Altars from the 16th and the 17th centuries
  • The classical Chancel by Jerónimo de Ruao, made for the royal family, with tombs of king Manuel I and his wife Maria of Aragon; and of King Joao III and his wife Queen Catherine of Austria.
  • Tombs of Vasco da Gama and Luis de Camoes
  • The beautifully laid out two storey cloister of the monastery.
  • Tomb of the poet Fernando Pessoa, poet and playwright Almeida Garrett, historian Alexandre Herculano, and erstwhile presidents Teofilo Braga and Oscar Carmona

Also located on the complex are the Museu Nacional de Arqueologia (National Archaeological Museum) and the Museu da Marinha (Maritime Museum). Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Lisbon Itinerary 7 Days.
