Full description

Get entrance tickets to Jerónimos monastery, a national monument classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and located near the city of Lisbon. Learn about how King Manuel I commissioned the monastery in 1496 to honor the Infante for his devotion to Our Lady and faith in St. Jerome.

Once inside, marvel at the Manueline or Portuguese Late Gothic architecture. Discover how the monastery of St. Mary of Belém was donated to the monks of the Order of St. Jerome. For this reason, it is commonly known as the Jerónimos Monastery.

In 1833, when the order was dissolved, the monastery was used as a school and orphanage until 1940. In the 19th century, the church became the monument for local heroes and poets such as Luís de Camões and Vasco da Gama.

Come and discover what is not simply a notable work of architecture, but also an important part of Portuguese identity and culture.

    Breathtaking structure. Worth waiting on line. Be aware that as you face the building, to your right is a line to get into the church, which is free. The entry to the church is right next to the entry to the monastery, but the line goes to the left (ticket required). The line to buy tickets for that was practically nonexistent (or you can buy them online while you wait to get into the building). Near the left end of the building is the maritime museum. You can do the 3 places in any order, the lines vary. The ones go the monastery thinned out in the afternoon. Don’t miss the maritime museum (separate ticket less than $10) which had no crowds. Fascinating history of the early explorers. You finish at the cafe/gift shop (bathrooms, pretty good food, outside seating).

    We went early Sunday morning as it is closed on Monday, first ones in with our pre-purchase tickets. Beautiful place, without the crowds we saw it in 30 minutes, they let us in early. Church got out just as we left so we could see the chapel, otherwise you cannot on Sunday without attending services. Beautiful little church, with Vasco de games grave.

    Having visited several other sites in Portugal during our stay, it's difficult to call all of them excellent, especially when something like the Palacio Pena sets a high bar. The monastery is worth visiting.....it's just not as grandiose as the Palace. Of course, there is a church (with free entry) right next to the monastery...so that's a plus. The architecture inside was impressive, as was all the ornate stone carving found everywhere. It's an easy visit, wandering through a set path....and it's likely not to be too crowded. There will probably be a line to get in the next door church....but it's not too bad. Definitely worth visiting.
