  • Lisbon: Jerónimos Monastery Entrance Ticket

    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.

    I thought I was paying for more areas of the monestary and tours. It was too expensive just for the small area of the monestary that was basically a court yard and some rooms. The church was free to everyone. I would suggest skip the small monestay next to the church and just go to the free church are.
