Mosteiro dos Jerónimos

Monuments | Museums

A masterpiece of Portuguese 16th century architecture, this is classified as a National Monument and inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list (1983). The Mosteiro dos Jerónimos is located in one of the most qualified areas of Lisbon, a historic and monumental setting next to the Tagus River, the place from which the ships and caravels that would give “new worlds to the world” set sail during the Discoveries. On the imposing façade of the Monastery, which extends for about 300 meters, rises the richly decorated South Portal of the Church, where the images of the Holy Patron of Portugal, the Archangel St. Michael (at the top) and the image of Holy Mary of Belém, or Our Lady of Kings (in the center) stand out. The monastic ensemble still preserves today, in addition to the Manueline church, a large part of the magnificent convent facilities that contributed to its international fame, including the 16th century cloister, the former monks' Refectory and the Old Library room.
