Queued for 20 minutes (despite having a Lisboncard), it’s nice inside but there’s not that much to see. The free church next door I found more impressive.

The 10 euro ticket might seem steep for a visit to a monastery, but if you're a museum glutton as I am you can add 2 more euros for a combination ticket to the Archeology Museum next door and get in for 6, sort of....More

Unfortunately the Cloister is closed on Mondays, what a disappointment! It looked beautify from the outside though. Tourists are usually advised to travel from the centre of Lisbon to Cais do Sodre metro and then jump on the 15 or 15E bus from the station....More

We really enjoyed this as it might have been the most beautiful building we visited in Lisbon. The architecture is amazing and on a blue sunny day it is just perfect for pictures. Plan on spending at least an hour poking around on the multiple...More

It’s a nice monastery, but nothing outstanding and maybe not worth the money, unless you are highly into history and want to read the information

A trip to this monastery' should definitely be included especially seeing the burial of Vasco de Gama. Notice the pillars holding the arched ceilings resemble palm trees

I visited the monastery on a Tuesday around 10am. Upon arriving there was a long line to go inside. I had purchased a Lisboa card which didn’t let me skip the line but I did get in for free. The long line was worth the...More

This is a very serious church which is huge and well appointed. Luckily they do not charge to walk through, although there are additional trips at extra cost.

Of course, aside from pastéis de Belem, the other treasure of Belem was the majestic Church of Santa Maria de Belém of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos itself, a most impressive Manueline monument and the most beautiful church we saw this trip. The pillars of its...More

€10 to get in, no line up this time of year. 500yo monastery which is impressive. Not large and you only need 39mins. The even more impressive attached church is free.

Well, if it's still useful to you, you can easily get to Belém from downtown Lisbon by taking the train at Cais do Sodré (metro/train stop) towards Cascais. That's cheap and fast. Or you can take a taxi. Enjoy!
