Jerónimos Monastery FAQs

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 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 100 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.

Take it for more than a day and squeeze everything out of it. Totally worth it! When you exchange code for the card take a leaflet with the list of what is included and where are discounts.
