Monastery of Jeronimus

Gardens & Parks, Monuments & Sites, Museums & Art Centres
Monastery of Jeronimus was built between 1501 and early 1600, on the site of the former chapel where Vasco da Gama and his crew prayed before setting sail to the Orient in 1497. It houses  today also the National Archaeological Museum and the Maritime Museum.

The former monastery of the Order of Saint Jerome, built by the architect Diogo de Boitaca, was secularised in 1833, and represents an excellent example of the Late Gothic Manuele architecture.
