If you can, get there about 10 minutes before opening as the line will otherwise be very long. If you have a student ID with you, you will pay less. It's best to come here in the morning as you avoid crowds of people and can take beautiful pictures w.. Read more »

The Monastery is worth a visit. The structure of the building is quite impressive. The intricate design on the facade is worth seeing. The monument has the statues if the apostles and the former King of Portugal. You will see this on the side entra.. Read more »


Beautiful building. We went late in the day and the queue was gone. The queue to get in the church was still long - maybe because it was free and it was sunday. The architecture here is amazing.


A little piece of beautiful history. I waited in line here while snacking on the tarts (as many do) and I probably waited 30 minutes in line or so. There's two parts, the monastery and the church, and they have separate lines. Once inside, it's quite.. Read more »


Beautiful and unique architecture. The cloisters are quiet even today. Tip - This place gets very crowded. Go early as soon as it opens to avoid the crowds and to get fantastic pictures that have only you and the monastery.


The Monastery is a peaceful place. The architecture is more impressive from outside than the inside. Currently the monastery is under a reconstruction phase that doesn’t allow to see all of the details of the Monastery’s columns.


We went on a Monday, when it is closed. So I cannot speak to the interior of the place. But from the outside, just enjoying the grounds and the architecture, the Monastery is gorgeous! It's worth just looking around the grounds, and I can only assume.. Read more »


This is quite the building, I wish we had been able to see the library during our visit. The monastery is beautiful, if a little empty, with only a few main areas to visit. It's nice to see the cathedral from both above and from the ground floor. It'.. Read more »


Lovely site to see. With a history going back centuries, it is one of the oldest extant sites in Lisbon. The facilities consist of lovely architecture and beautiful artwork. The only surprising thing was that the site itself is rather small. From the.. Read more »


My first monastery and this place did not disappoint! It is absolutely beautiful! Buy your ticket in advance as the lines are very long! If you’re into taking pictures like I am, it’s best to go either early morning or 1-2 hours before close. Othe.. Read more »


PROBABLY THE BEST The best place to visit if you are a tourist, and a correct representation of what we could do as a people back in the day. It's huge and gorgeous. It’s part of the history. It's just by the river, surrounded by a great concert hall.. Read more »


Every time that I come to Lisbon, I try to visit the Jeronimos. This is one of my favorites places in the city. The building is absolutely fabulous and the architecture inside and outside is astonishing...
