Located in the Belém district and designed in Portuguese late-Gothic style, this spectacular religious complex was associated with early explorers in the past. It is also said that Vasco da Gama spent his last night here, before traveling to the Far East. His tomb can now be seen in the lower choir of the Church of Santa Maria. Throughout its history, the monastery also served as a burial place for kings.
The complex consists of a church and a convent and it is popular for its rich and beautiful decorations. Especially beautiful is the cloister with its decorated arches. The monastery was declared a World Heritage monument in 1983.
