Highlights

The monastery is beautiful and certainly worth the visit. However, they should, in my opinion, better manage the very long lines to enter by making tickets by time slots

The monastery was beautiful. The only negative thing was that I had to wait for almost 2hrs to get inside and queue again to visit the church.

There's plenty of room inside the monastery. Why let people wait for 1 hour before entering? Same for the church. Thank you for your help.

When I made the payment, I imagined that I would receive a confirmation email with a link to download the ticket, or a QR code. I didn't know that I would have to download the Headout app to get the ticket. As I'm not a tech-savvy person, I was only able to get in because, at the venue's information kiosk, a kind man recognized the booking code and helped me.

A Portuguese national monument since 1907 and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1983, the Jerónimos Monastery is one of the highest symbols of medieval Portuguese architecture. Historically and artistically connected to the Belém Tower, both these notable landmarks of Lisbon were built on the initiative of King Manuel I, who ruled between 1495 and 1521. The Belém Tower was built not only to protect the port of Lisbon but also for the Jerónimos Monastery.

Soak up the different elements that make up this stunning model of Manueline architectural style including Gothic, Moorish, and Renaissance styles. The two levels of cloisters are so intricate and filled with structural detail that they took a hundred years to be completed! Spot mythical creatures like gargoyles and marine animals within the carvings, columns, and arches. Don’t miss the vaulted ceilings on the lower level of the monastery or the views from the higher level of the adjacent Church of Santa Maria de Belém.

Optional upgrade with the Lisbon Card

Opt for a Lisbon Card that gives you access to sites like the Belém Tower, the National Costume Museum, the National Museum of the Azulejo, and more, with free transportation, for a hassle-free sightseeing experience.
