No expense was spared when they built this masterpiece of Manueline and Gothic architecture in 1502, which was inspired by Vasco da Gama who is buried here with other great navigators of the past.

This is a horrifyingly busy sight and as such the paid museum part with the cloisters is very busy. We visited the free religious part and it was gorgeous and intricate. Then again we are architecture fans so queues for museums never sit well with...More

I didn’t really understand the fuss. We got tickets at the museum and skipped the long line. It is mainly a courtyard and some rooms. The church is the main attraction and that didn’t seem to require a ticket.

See the tomb of Vasco de Gama. Go to the upper level. Do not pay 10 Euro to see, go for free to the right lane.

Nice building, but not as interesting as expected. About what one could expect, no real wow factor. And hardly interesting presentation of the complex.
