    Visit one of Lisbon’s most significant landmarks – the Royal Monastery of Santa Maria de Belém, more commonly known as, Jerónimos Monastery.


    • Discover this masterpiece of Portuguese architecture, Jerónimos Monastery, with its detailed structural cloisters, corridors, vaulted ceilings, and decorative entrance.

    • As this monastery was built as a tribute to Vasco da Gama’s successful journey to India (and to sea explorers), you’ll spot different maritime influences and creatures in the architecture.

    • Take a stroll through the garden and admire the fountain, decorated with Portuguese coats of arms.

    • Create a hassle-free itinerary with a Lisbon Card which will give you access to sites like the Belém Tower, the National Costume Museum, the National Museum of the Azulejo, and more, with free transportation.

    Ticketing experience was generally good. I was excited about the tour and enjoyed it. I was disappointed that the tomb of Vasco da Gama was not included in the tour as this was a major reason I had planned to visit.

    Very beautiful place, unlike any other in Lisbon. Worth the long (1h15) wait (even with pre-booked tickets for the opening time). Probably best to reserve 2 hours for it, especially if you want to visit the free church attached to the monastery/cloisters, which we recommend. Staff were efficient though could work on their welcome (I work at a very well known place of worship and a warm welcome is always what we strive to achieve!).

    It says in the email that you will receive tickets. This is not the case. You will receive a confirmation. Otherwise top. Quick handling at the airport.

    The cloister is fabulous. The entrance of people is regulated and therefore you can enjoy more of the whole tour. It is impossible to stop taking pictures!

    A beautiful monument. I'd seen it before but it's always a pleasure to see it again. And given the wait, I'm not the only one who thinks so. The only drawback was that I couldn't do the church. I didn't see on the website how to get tickets.

    A Portuguese national monument since 1907 and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1983, the Jerónimos Monastery is one of the highest symbols of medieval Portuguese architecture. Historically and artistically connected to the Belém Tower, both these notable landmarks of Lisbon were built on the initiative of King Manuel I, who ruled between 1495 and 1521. The Belém Tower was built not only to protect the port of Lisbon but also for the Jerónimos Monastery.

    Soak up the different elements that make up this stunning model of Manueline architectural style including Gothic, Moorish, and Renaissance styles. The two levels of cloisters are so intricate and filled with structural detail that they took a hundred years to be completed! Spot mythical creatures like gargoyles and marine animals within the carvings, columns, and arches. Don’t miss the vaulted ceilings on the lower level of the monastery or the views from the higher level of the adjacent Church of Santa Maria de Belém.
