Jeronimos Monastery

Praça do Império, 1400-206 Lisboa

The Jerónimos Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) was founded in 1501 by King Manuel I of Portugal as an expression of gratitude for the sucessful voyage of Vasco da Gama to India. It´s a great monument to the Age of Discovery and a magnificent example of the Gothic-Renaissance Manueline style of architecture. It was classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the nearby Tower of Belém, in 1983. Beside the stunning exterior and interior you can see tombs of King Manuel I. and his wife Maria Aragon, King John III. and his wife Catherine of Habsburg; gravestones of Vasco da Gama (1468-1523) and writer Luís Vaz de Camões (1527-1570).
