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.

Incredibly beautiful architecture and interior. Seems to retain a peaceful feeling despite the crowds. It is just one of the many must-see's in the Lisbon area.

It was difficult to appreciate due to the crowds, I'd advise trying to visit either early morning or late afternoon to avoid the hordes.

We visited with an organised tour and walked right in. I felt sorry for those queueing for entry tickets in the blazing sun !! the monastery was well worth the visit, inside and out.

What we saw was great but due to the long queues and the time we had we were unable to see the cloisters. It's rather moving to be here; history comes alive as you stand before the tomb of Vasco da Gama - a name...More

This stop in Lisbon was by far the most tranquil and stunning buildings I think that I've ever had the pleasure of visiting in Europe. I would definitely recommend visiting around closing time as I practically had the monastery to myself! It was amazing to...More

I have seen a great many monasteries, and after a while, they start to get boring. But this one is surprisingly enjoyable. The church itself is free to enter, whereas cloister is extra. You may be tempted to skip the cloister, but that would be...More
