About Jeronimos Monastery, Lisbon

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.

  • A must visit if you are in Belem. The Monetary is an excellent example of Manueline architecture and took almost 100 years to be completed. However, the time consumed wasn't just because of the sophistication involved but also for financial reasons. Nevertheless, the Monetary stands as a fine relic of the time when Portugal used to rule the sea and the trade through it. Entry to the Church is free and entry to the Monastery will cost around 6 euros.

  • A beautiful building both on the inside and outside. The exhibits inside are however annoying, in that, for example large boards obscure the view of the chapel. The "old library" has a lot of info boards - one which has a nice idea but is poorly performed: it shows the history of the monastery side by side with world and Portuguese history. However, there are far too many stops along the 600+ years of history that I couldn't be bothered to spend any time on it. Cut down by a factor 5 or ten and it would make much more sense. The church is really impressive and worth a visit of its own. The courtyard was closed off at the time of my visit, but I guess it is beautiful up close too.

  • Breathtakingly beautiful monastery, inside and out, though it’s too touristy to have a ‘religious experience.’ You’re more likely to bump into a stranger while they’re trying to take a photo than feel the spirit inhabiting these relics. That said, there’s a reason it’s so popular.

  • 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!

  • 10€ a person to see the interior of the monastery. The church is free and beautiful to see. You get an incredible sense of history here. The museum is next to the church but is an additional fee.
