Monastery of St. Jerome After Hours Tour

This is the summit of the manueline, the unique Portuguese late gothic style. Walk its imposing halls, passages, cloister and church, in the solitude and silence of an after-hours tour.

Your guide will tell you why a king commanded this monastery to be built. She will explain to you the intricate sculpted images. Historical, nautical and natural, they are a defining feature of the manueline.

You will also discover the tombs of famous men. Explorer Vasco da Gama and writers Alexandre Herculano and Fernando Pessoa are among those whose bodies rest here. And it’s so much more special when there is nobody else around.
