Best for Culture - Expert review of Mosteiro dos Jerónimos
A grand example of Manueline architecture, this imperious monastery was built to celebrate the discovery of India and houses the tomb of the great explorer, Vasco da Gama. More recently, the monastery was in the global eye in 2007 when Europe's leaders signed the controversial Lisbon Treaty in its cloistered courtyard. The majesty of the period construction is jaw-dropping and a must-see for any Lisbon sightseer.
Entry to the monastery and cloisters is six euros, and free for children under 14. It's free to enter the church only.
