Owner description: 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.

Quite a long line to get inside but quite pretty. Can get some good photo opportunities of the inside. Worth while going if in Belém

Amazing architecture, different from everywhere else in Europe. Easy to get to by train from Lisbon or Cascais and you can easily spend 2-3 hours there. Not to miss.

We were in line before the monastery opened as we did not have tickets. The line was only half an hour or so but when we were leaving it was huge. Plan ahead! The architecture here was beautiful.

Portugal has plenty of Historical sites and this one you can't miss! It does not open on Mondays, and on Sundays there are masses. Have a plan.

I have been all over the world and seen hundreds of churches, cathedrals, monastery's and in all those trips this was the grandest most spectacular one i have ever seen. I was enormous and the architecture was splendid all the way through i was blown away. I am so angry with myself that i got there just after it had closed for the day and i was leaving the next morning
