Jeronimos Monastery (official name- Mosteiro De Santa Maria De Belem) is a lovely monastery in Lisbon. The beauty and architecture of the building have made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was from this place that Vasco De Gama began his voyage to colonize India. Completed in 1601, it took a century to build this stately, mind-numbingly beautiful church and monastery. Having a Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline architecture, the highlights of the monastery 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.
- This extremely stunning place should certainly be a treat for lovers of art and culture and is perhaps one of the most important places to visit in Lisbon.
Also located on the complex are the Museu Nacional de Arqueologia (National Archaeological Museum) and the Museu da Marinha (Maritime Museum). The Place is perhaps also one of the most important places to visit in Lisbon.

Jeronimos Monastery, Lisbon Reviews - Write a Review
Usually I go every year. It's a really nice place to visit with your family, friends or girlfriend. I'm definitely going again this Christmas (holidays) . Keep in mind that it doesn't need to be summer! You can always visit this wonderful place!
This monastery is just fantastic, wonderful. You will not be able to decide which side to admire while inside of it. It is definitely marvelous and obviously a must-see place while you are visiting Lisbon. Just take a bus, a taxi or a bicycle from the “Praça do Comércio” and go there. Surely something you will like to visit.
The monastery itself is stunning. No doubt about it. The two stars are for that. The loss is on the part of the staff. Not sure if they misunderstood me but their English seemed fine. I asked for 12€ ticket to enter both the ancient artifacts museum and the cloister. Handed the lady the cash but she only took the 10€ bill. I said I wanted both but they wouldn't listen. Other staff member he said "no you said only for the cloister". Just walked away and shook my head. Put a dent in the experience for sure
Words can not describe how amazing this place is!!! Getting there early is helpful, if you want to enjoy so quiet time. With the Lisboa Card it's free and worth it!!!!!
Beautiful place but not friendly to the solo traveler. The queues for ticket office was chaotic, and no one gave clear instructions. As a solo traveler, you can only lined up under the sun for over 30 mins and hope you are on the right line. The staff at the ticket office was not very friendly, maybe too many tourists for him to handle? They can really hire more people. Tried to find my way to get in and asked the security guide who didn't speak perfect English - just kept saying in the meal - later found out he means in the middle and it turns out it's exactly where's standing at the time. A female local tour guide rudely interrupted me to get inside mosteiro because she couldn't allow me to after her group and she couldn't count the right number. I paid for my entrance and why on earth I need to wait. Tried to fight for my right, I could finally get in but the other security lady was also blaming me? If there's another entrance for individual then show me, otherwise I have the same right to enter the place. The whole arrangement was chaotic and unpleasant. It's indeed a beautiful place but there's lots of other beautiful places in the world.
