Mon - Sun:None
The Jerónimos Monastery, also called as the Hieronymites Monastery, is an outstanding example of Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline style of architecture. Manuel Ist commissioned this monastery to celebrate Vasco da Gama’s discovery of a route to India by sea and had French architect Diogo de Boitaca design it.
Amongst other notables, the monastery is the last resting place of explorer Vasco da Gama and Portugal’s most famous poet Luis de Camoes. The Monastery also houses the mortal remains of poet Fernando Pessoa, playwright Almeida Garrett, writer-historian Alexandre Herculano and former presidents Teofilo Braga and Oscar Carmano! Quite a party!

Beautiful megalithic monastery, It is huge, ornate with spectacular inner chambers and courtyard. I don’t really like religious buildings but this is something else! It is a little of out town, don’t try to walk there like we did from Lisbon, jus a bit too far.
