If you want to see a beautiful building and church in Lisbon, then the SA Cathedral is nice, but the Jeronios Monastery is much nicer (at least that is what we think). This building was placed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list back in 1983, and it for sure deserves its place there.

When you first see this, what you will notice first is probably the church connected to the monastery, the Church of Santa Maria. This is a beautiful church and inside you can among others see the tombs of Vasco da Gama and Luís de Camões. It is free to enter into the church, but if you want to visit the amazing monastery you will need to buy yourself a ticket.

If you decide to visit the monastery as well you will get to see beautiful architecture greatly inspired with Manueline, European, Moorish and Eastern motifs. The entrance fees vary, but if you buy a combined ticket to the monastery and to the Belem Tower, the price is around 12 Euros.

Do not forget to visit Pasteis de Belem when you are here to buy the traditional and original Pastel de nata from the store just next to the monastery.
