Monesterio dos Jerónimos

Awe-inspiring UNESCO site!

Absolutely Wonderful

Why You'll Love It

Construction began on this UNESCO World Heritage Site in the early 16th century on the site where Vasco da Gama’s crew stayed before leaving for India and to commemorate Henry the Navigator. Vasco da Gama is entombed there.

Really, it’s jaw-droppingly impressive and worth the visit. The stone carving is exquisite, and the cloisters are stunning. You have to see it this paragon of Manueline architecture to believe it.
