Experience

Highlights
  • Admire this 16th-century architectural masterpiece
  • Discover the history of this important monument for Portuguese identity and culture
  • Visit the monuments of Vasco da Gama and Luís de Camões
Full description
With this access, learn more 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. 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.

This national monument was classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and is located near the city of Lisbon, next to the Tagu River.

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.
