All year long

Stone lacework.

A perfect example of Manueline art, and classed as a world heritage site by Unesco in 1983, the Monastery of the Hieronymites (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) has always been one of Portugal’s symbolic monuments, and took from 1502 until nearly a century later to build.

Financed by a special tax on spices imported from Africa and Asia and built with limestone, the building’s majestic façade is more than 300 metres long.

The monastery’s church houses the tombs of illustrious national figures such as the king Dom Manuel I and his descendants, the explorer Vasco da Gama and the poet Luís de Camões, while the writer Fernando Pessoa lies at rest in the cloister.
