No expense was spared when they built this masterpiece of Manueline and Gothic architecture in 1502, which was inspired by Vasco da Gama who is buried here with other great navigators of the past.

This is a great experience BUT. We arrived an hour before opening and thank goodness. First in line and by 30 minutes before opening the line stretched for a block. An hour after opening the lines stretched even further. Hours afterwards there were at least...More

This really was out of the world. The church was simply the best I have seen. There were bus loads of tourists...for a shorter queue head to the museum next to the monastery to buy the tickets.

OK it takes a long time to build a church and a lot of bad things happen over a century or do that changes how the construction and adornments go. So is the story of every house of worship of this calibre all over Europe....More

Get there before the doors open! Worth the wait in line. Beautiful carving and architecture. Beware that your monestary ticket does not give you permission to skip the line for the free church visit. You'll have to go to the back of the line and...More

Impressive architecture but not specifically informative as it's a bit empty inside. And it's too much overcrowded (and maybe overpriced...). It was interesting to see Fernando Pessoa's grave in the monastery itself along Vasco da Gama's and Camoes' ones in the church as I am...More

A very beautiful and grand place, with particularly impressive cloisters - we just wished there were more signposts about so we could read more about its history. Expect crowds, crowds and more crowds, and allow plenty of time for queueing.

This is a most gorgeous building well cared for. Sitting in the cloisters is a spiritual experience even with a lot of people people around. Visit the exposition about the founding of the monestary.

The best place I visited in Lisbon! Beautiful, tranquil, stunning... cant think of enough positive adjectives!!! Combined with everything else to do around this area - Balem Tower etc etc, this should be a must do thing for any visitor to Lisbon

This was a total waste of time and money. There is nothing to see really, especially for €10!! Just an empty two story building. It's not that easy to get there either, as the metro doesn't go to that area. If you really like to...More

Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries"
and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire
day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos
Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries),
museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and
breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your
visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of
restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and

If you are visiting the monastery you may also be planning to go to the Belem Tower which is a ten minute walk along the river. There is also the Archaeology Museum and the shop where the Pasteis de Nata custard pies... More

I agree that if you have one day in Lisboa, the monastery isn't worth it. It's not a priority—center your time on the city itself, the Alfama district or exploring Chiado. If you do to this area, I recommend the Torre de... More
