Things to do in Jerónimos Monastery

4.5/5 (369)

The Jerónimos Monastery is located in the district of Belém, west of the center of Lisbon. It is one the most important tourist attraction in Lisbon, inside which lies the tomb of Vasco de Gama.

The Monastery, also called Hieronymites Monastery, is along with the Tower of Belém, one of the most visited sites in Lisbon. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. The religious building was designed by the Portuguese architect Diogo de Boitaca to commemorate the return of Vasco da Gama from India. The construction began on 6 January 1501 and wasn’t completed until the seventeenth century. The building is predominantly Manueline style (Portuguese late Gothic). Curiously, the monastery was built on the site of the former Ermida do Restelo, the chapel where Vasco da Gama and the rest of the sailors prayed before setting sail down the African coast to India.

In the surroundings there are many famous attractions to not miss such as the Tower of Belém, the Monument of Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos) the Maritime Museum, the National Coach Museum and the Cultural Center of Belém.

Lisbon Tour from the Algarve

Few capitals are as diverse as Lisbon. From the tightly packed alleys of the old town to the elegant boulevards of Baixa Pombalina, it's a city bursting with charm and life – and classic yellow trams. Gonçalo, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Much of Lisbon was destroyed in the 1755 earthquake, and was then rebuilt under the Marquis of Pombal's guidance into the first city with innovative earthquake-resistant designs – hence today's name for the district: Baixa Pombalina.'Things kick off reasonably early, allowing you to reach Lisbon in good time. Get ready for spectacular views over the city as you cross the Golden Gate-like 25th April Bridge over the River Tagus to the seafront district of Belém. You'll get to see Belém Tower, the Monument of Discoveries and much more. Gonçalo says, 'Belém Tower was built in the early 16th century and is an iconic symbol of Portugal's Age of Discoveries. It once stood on a small island near the riverbank, but as the river's course changed, it now sits near the shore. Over the years, it's served as a defense point, a lighthouse, a customs house, and even a prison.'Next, sightsee by bus passing by the Basilica Estrela among other sights. Your guide will then point out the best areas of the city to check out during your free time – whether you prefer to shop, dine or simply stroll streets lined with impressive buildings from Portugal's imperial days. You'll return to the Algarve via the Vasco da Gama Bridge – the longest in Europe.

Maria Teresa, 13 Jul 2024

“Ho trovato la Lisbona card molto comoda, ottima x usufruire dei trasporti e degli ingressi nei principali monumenti che ho visitato. Per migliorare il servizio sarebbe utile consegnare all'utente, al momento del ritiro della card, una cartina con i percorsi delle varie linee dei mezzi pubblici.”

“La Lisboa card était très utile pour les déplacements en transport en commun métro tramway et bus et nous a permis ma femme et moi d'accéder à certains lieux à visiter à Lisbonne. Globalement pour les 3 jours que nous avons passé à Lisbonne, c'était une bonne formule. Je la recommande vivement.”
