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.

    The monastery is definitely worth paying to visit. However, the queue to get in (even with tickets) is incredibly long. We went on January 4th (not tourist season) and we waited an hour to get in. Happily, after looking around the monastery, the queue to the (free) church had dwindled down to about a dozen people. Very quick to get in. I also recommend heading down the street to try the Pastéis de Belém. Another (quickly moving) queue and the best tarts- in my opinion!

    Definitely worth a visit, the interior is absolutely stunning. Best to go early though to avoid the queues. We got there around 10-10:30 and we queued for about 30-50 min. There is a separate queue to see the inside of the church which is right next door (we didn't want to queue again)

    Despite having a ticket, you still have to stand in line to enter (fortunately, the line moves quickly). In the museum you can see the courtyard - very beautiful - from several tiers, there are practically no interior spaces. You can also visit the church in the same ensemble for free (without a ticket).
