Tips for visiting Jerónimos Monastery

Once you have flashed your Jerónimos Monastery tickets at the entrance, you can spend as much time as you like inside. Most people spend between 1 to 3 hours exploring this 500-year-old architectural masterpiece. Its sheer size is almost as impressive as its history!

The best time to use your Jerónimos Monastery tickets is during the morning when it first opens. This way you should beat the crowds. The Jerónimos Monastery is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Lisbon, so if you go too late, you'll be amongst lots of other tourists!

The Jerónimos Monastery has a storied past and is a famous and much-loved Lisbon landmark. Here are three Jerónimos Monastery facts you might not know:

The recipe for pastéis de nata was created here

Portugal’s favorite and tastiest pastry was created by the monks who used to live in the monastery. The recipe for pastéis de nata (also known as pastéis de Belém) was developed over more than 100 years before it was first recorded in the 1830s.

It took 50 years to build

The Jerónimos Monastery was built over the course of the 1500s and was no small construction project. There was a 5% tax on commerce from Africa and the Orient to help fund the project which amounted to around 70 kg of gold per year, so architects weren't limited to small-scale plans!

It's an ode to the Age of Discoveries

Portugal’s King Manuel I ordered for the monastery to be built where the navigator Vasco da Gama and his team of travelers spent their last night in Portugal, before setting off for India. It was the first trip from Europe to India by way of the Atlantic Ocean.

Your Jerónimos Monastery tickets get you into one of the most visited landmarks in Portugal, as well as the final resting place of many historical figures.

Of all the Jerónimos Monastery burials, perhaps the most famous one is King Manuel I (1469 - 1521). His family are also buried here with many later members of the monarchs from the House of Aviz – a dynasty that flourished in the Renaissance and the Age of Discoveries,

Lots of famous Portuguese writers had a Jerónimos Monastery burial, including Fernando Pessoa and Luís de Camões. World-renowned navigator Vasco da Gama (1469 - 1524) has also rested here since 1880.

There are several different Jerónimos Monastery ticket options for you to choose between.

Visit with a standard Jerónimos Monastery ticket, which includes skip-the-line admission and access to the 16th-century cloister, the former monks’ refectory, and the former library.

You can also visit the Jerónimos Monastery with the Lisbon Card. This also provides access to up to 26 museums or monuments in the city.

If you need a convenient combination of must-sees in Lisbon, opt for the Jerónimos Monastery + Belém Tower ticket.

Belém Tower, or Torre de Belém, is a 16th-century fortification on the banks of Lisbon's River Tagus. This architectural jewel is a must-see when in the city, and is home to magical interiors, spiral staircases, a chapel, dungeons, and a beautiful view from the upper terrace. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, Belém Tower is a 15-minute walk from another Lisbon icon, Jerónimos Monastery.

This 16th-century monastery was transformed into a royal palace by King Ferdinand II. Not known for his subtlety, Ferdinand's folly is a no-holds-barred tribute to the wealth and influence of 19th-century Portugal. A testament to the power of imagination (and money), the castle is surrounded by 500 acres of plants and maze-like pathways.
