Hieronymite Museum

Hieronymite Museum or the Jeronimos Monastery represented the gilded age of conquests for Portugal. Situated in Belem, the former monastery was the first stop for many conquistadores who prayed for guidance before setting off to their missions. In fact, it is the final resting place for two legendary sons of Portugal, conqueror Vasco de Gama and writer Luis de Camoes.

Originating from the end of the 15th century, the Hieronymite Museum epitomizes the fusion of Gothic and Renaissance styles along with Christianity symbols, which was known as Manueline architecture pertaining to King Manuel I who’s also laid to rest in the monastery. The king built this grandiose complex, not only due to religious fervor, but to serve as his national Pantheon. The sheer amount of fine art, from architecture to sculptures, contained within definitely reflects this purpose, as are the tombs of past leaders and literary geniuses.

Touring the Hieronymite Museum is an encounter with Portugal’s great heritage, one that must not be missed while in Lisbon! Its opening hours are between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except Mondays and public holidays when it is closed. Lisbon hotels are chockfull of charm, be it located in quiet narrow alleys or in bustling public squares. Choose from guesthouses, chains, resorts and palatial hotels for accommodations in Lisbon.
