Jeronimos Monastery - Review

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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Lisbon Itinerary 7 Days.

Jeronimos Monastery, Lisbon Reviews

  • Worth visiting but make sure you get there before 3pm as they stop selling combo tickets for the monastery and the belem tower at that point. Beautiful monastery which will take you about 45min to complete incl pictures. Beautiful details in the architecture everywhere and it is best not to be in a rush. The ceilings are exquisite and many rooms have a different ceiling design. The pillars have beautiful as well! Nearly each pillar has a different design! A must see.

  • Beautiful historical place of Lisboa! A must stop if you visiting. However, make sure you don't waste you time standing in the line to the right, but rather go to the left (entrance to the museum of Archeology) and buy tickets there, it will save you tons of time. The monastery is a masterpiece and church is beautiful! We enjoyed every minute and loved the display of 500 years of history in Portugal, Monastery and world.

  • Breaktaking monastery and church constructed in the early 1500s as a tribute to Portuguese explorers by King Manuel I, the Fortunate. It is a must-see if traveling to Portugal. Don't wait in the long line, but instead go to the museum and purchase a combo-ticket for €12. Then go past the line (between the church and monastery) and show your ticket to the security guard for entrance. For just €6 more you can get a ticket to the Tower of Belém as well. The museum is worth a walk-through, and will take approximately 30-60 minutes depending on how much you like to read about what you're viewing. In the monastery on the second floor is an exhibit of the history of time, along that of the monastery and Portugal.

  • Amazing place, and definitely worth a visit. Lonely Planet said it's free from 10-14:00 on Sundays, but that's only for Portuguese citizens (sign wasn't completely clear whether time and citizenship were separate qualifications). I certainly don't mind paying to see such an amazing place though. Standing in line when it's hot is not fun, so I'd recommend getting a fast pass if the cost difference isn't too much for you (maybe about €10 more I'm guessing). Those have to be printed, and I don't know where to get them other than online. I waited in the queue when it was less busy than usual, but would still have bought a speed pass of I could. If you're on a tight budget, I think visiting the church is free, and it is so beautiful that a visit there alone would have satisfied me. For the church, please do respect the requests to keep as silent as possible, avoid flash photography, etc. It is still a place of prayer. (I accidentally left auto flash on at the beginning, oops.) I recommend getting the ticket for the Tower of Belém at the same time. Although not a fast pass, it let me skip part of the queue there as they have a separate one for people who already have tickets.

  • First advice. Don't line up. Buy the ticket from a museum nearby so you skip the 1 hour line. Inside is so big and so beautiful. So much interesting information to discover and to learn. This monastery is one of the best I saw in my life. Absolutely beautiful and well preserved.
