Jeronimos Monastery | A symbol of the age of exploration

Located at Santa Maria de Belem, the Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon is an iconic architectural wonder. The Jeronimos Monastery is an integral part of the history and culture of Portugal, that teems with history, spirituality, and culture. This UNESCO World Heritage site took a hundred years to complete. It represents the age of discovery, a time when most of the world was unknown and Europeans were just beginning to navigate across the oceans and seas to discover an unfamiliar world.

Things to know before booking your Jeronimos Monastery tickets

Guided tours: To fully appreciate the historical and architectural significance, opt for a guided tour, which provides in-depth insights into the monastery's history.

Book online: To secure your visit and avoid long lines, consider purchasing tickets online, especially during peak tourist seasons..

Disability access: Confirm the availability of disability-friendly facilities and services if you or someone in your group has mobility challenges, as this will impact your decision.

Why visit Jeronimos Monastery?

Why Visit Jeronimos Monastery
  • Ancient Spiritual Centre for Sailors: Before the Jeronimos monastery, the site housed a dilapidated old Church, which was the last chance for sailors to pray and confess before their voyages. King Manuel I requested and the then Pope permitted him to build this Monastery dedicated to St. Jerome. 
  • Heironymites Monastery: This Monastery was home to the Heironymites Monks so it is also known as Heironymites Monastery. Money poured into the Portuguese coffers from the Americans, hence it was lavishly built. Besides, the Jeronimos Monastery also marks Vasco Da Gama’s first journey to discover the route to India.
  • Architectural Marvel: Though primarily Manueline, this monastery is a harmonious blend of various architectural styles as it was constructed over a period of 100 years. There are traces of Mannerist, Renaissance, Spanish Renaissance ‘plateresque’ work, and even late Gothic architecture.
  • Icon of the Age of Discovery: The monastery is redolent with motifs of maritime equipment that was discovered during naval expeditions. It also has tombs of Portuguese royalty and eminent personalities like Luis de Camoes, Alexandre Herculano, Vasco Da Gama, Fernando Pessoa, and others.

Jeronimos Monastery highlights

Tomb of Fernando Pessoa in Jeronimos Monastery

Tomb of Fernando Pessoa

Fernando Pessoa was a poet, author, philosopher, and translator who was a significant literary figure of the early 20th century. He contributed immensely to European and Portuguese literature and is lauded as one of Portugal’s greatest poets. He was multilingual; he translated and wrote in English and French as well. His tomb lies on the lower level of the Cloister of Jeronimos Monastery. 

Tomb of Alexandro Herculano in Jeronimos Monastery

Tomb of Alexandre Herculano

Alexandre Herculano was a pioneer historian of Portugal's monarchy. His book ‘History of Portugal from the beginning of Monarchy to end of the Rein of Alfonso III’ is a pillar of Portuguese history as it is a work of careful research, simple writing, and accuracy. He was also a poet and introduced historic novels to the Portuguese literary scene. His neo-gothic tomb lies in the Chapter Room.

Tomb of Vasco da Gama in Jeronimos Monastery

Tomb of Vasco da Gama

Jeronimos Monastery is located close to the point where Vasco da Gama (1468 - 1524) disembarked for his voyage to India. His successful discovery of a route to India in 1498 was one of the reasons why permission was granted to build this lavish Monastery. His remains were transferred to the Monastery 400 years after he died. His stone tomb is beautiful and ornate within the Church in the lower choir.

Tomb of Luis de Camoes in Jeronimos Monastery

Tomb of Luis de Camoes

Great poet and chronicler of the Age of Discovery, Luis de Camoes’s (1527 – 1580) tomb lies in the lower choir within the Church. His tomb is an elaborate and ornate work that lies next to the Tomb of Vasco da Gama. He has considered one of the greatest poets of the Portuguese language since his mastery of verse is legendary. His death anniversary, 10 June, is also celebrated as Portugal’s National Day.

South Facade of the Jeronimos Monastery

South Facade and South Portal

The most photographed and iconic façade of the Jeronimos Monastery is the South Façade. Designed by the Spanish architect, Joao de Castilho, this is a beautiful example of Spanish Renaissance and plateresque work that resembles the work of a silversmith’s filigree work. Though it is not the main entrance to the Monastery, the South Portal is an elaborate construction that is 32 meters high and 12 meters wide. 

Cloister of the Jeronimos Monastery

Cloister

You enter the Cloister through a beautifully carved door. Visitors are often awed by the beautifully-designed, perfectly-proportioned stonework that decorates the Cloister. The Lower levels are more Manueline in design while the upper levels are more Renaissance-ish. The two levels of this Cloister and its detailed, delicate stonework were quite unique for its era. One of the galleries also has the tomb of the famous poet and philosopher Fernando Pessoa.

Chapter House of Jeronimos Monastery

Chapter House

The high vaulted ceilings give a sense of inordinate height and space. In the center, lies the tomb of Alexandre Herculano. This room was completed only in the 19th century and is a fine example of late gothic architecture. It has 2 large windows with the sides around the windows surrounded by detailed carvings. The entrance is flanked by the statue of St. Jerome and Archangel Michael.

Jeronimos Monastery Confessionals

Confessionals

The Confessionals are decorated by beautiful pillars that have elaborate carvings and stained-glass windows that let in the light from the South Side. The priest entered from the Cloister and the penitent entered from the Church. There were 12 Confessional rooms that were designed and completed within the first half of the 16th century. The black doors form a sober foreground to the elaborate Manueline designs around them.

Refectory of Jeronimos Monastery

Refectory

The Refectory was also completed by the first half of the 16th century during the reign of King Manuel I. Designed by Leonardo Vaz, it is classically Manueline with low vaulted ceilings. The lower walls of the Refectory are decorated with colorful azulejo tiles that depict the miracle of the bread and fish scenes in the New Testament and the scenes of the life of Joseph from the Old Testament. 

High Choir of Jeronimos Monastery

High Choir

This room was completed by 1551 and was used by the Heironymite Monks in lieu of the Chapter Room since that was not yet complete while the monastery was in use. This room is relatively austere and has high long windows that light up the room. At the entrance of the High Choir above the balustrade towers the magnificent statue of the crucified Christ in silver. 

Church of Santa Maria de Belem

Church of Santa Maria de Belem

The Church is designed like a Latin cross and made up of 3 uniform naves supported by 6 pillars that support an ornately decorated high vaulted ceiling. The High Altar of the Church is of Mannerist architecture that is complex and sophisticated. It forms a beautiful contrast to the rest of the Church with its elaborate carvings and Manueline architecture. It also holds the tombs of King Manuel I and Queen Maria. 

Chapel of Our Lord of the Steps in Jeronimos Monastery

Chapel of Our Lord of the Steps

When the Church was first built, this chapel was dedicated to Santo Antonio, the patron saint of Lisbon. A century later, the Brotherhood of Our Lord of Steps was founded and this chapel was dedicated to that. During this time, the altar was finished in gilded carving making it quite an eye-catching sight amongst the austere stones on the left side of the main church. 

Baptismal Chapel of the Jeronimos Monastery

Baptismal Chapel

This is to the left of the main Chapel and was initially dedicated to Saint Leonard. During the 19th century, it was transformed to be used as a Baptistry. This seems to be supported by the presence of a baptismal font that dates back to the same era and is of neo-Manueline design. This is relatively austere and contrasts with the gilded Chapel of Our Lord of Steps.

North and South Chapel of the Transept of Jeronimos Monastery

North and South Chapel of the Transept

The North and South Transept of the Church holds the royal tombs of the children of King Manuel I. The main Chapel, the North, and South Chapels form the Royal Pantheon that holds the tombs of the Royal family. The Main, North, and South Chapel were commissioned by the Queen Catherine of Austria. These are Mannerist in design and form a stark contrast to the rest of the church which is more ornate.
