This imposing building is a classic example of the Manueline style, work began in the early 1500s and took about a hundred years to complete it.
From fairy tale it is an appropriate term to describe it, once inhabited by monks then it became a school and an orphanage and now, become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can visit it.

Se vi trovate a Lisbona e più precisamente nel quartiere di Belém, dovete per forza andare a visitare il Mosteiro do Jerónimos.
C’è una leggenda dietro questo monastero, si pensa che venne eretto sui resti di una piccola chiesetta in cui si rifugiò Vasco da Gama per pregare prima di partire alla volta delle Indie, infatti nella Igreja Santa Maria de Belém, chiesa situata all’interno del monastero, risiede la tomba del grande navigatore.
Questa imponente costruzione è un classico esempio di stile manuelino, i lavori cominciarono all’inizio del 1500 e per completarlo ci vollero circa cento anni.
Da fiaba è un termine appropriato per descriverlo, una volta abitato da monaci poi diventò una scuola ed un orfanotrofio ed ora, diventato Patrimonio dell’Umanità dell’Unesco, è possibile visitarlo.

I just wonder how much resources and money this required to create, while the common folks were starving.


It was built to order by the king of Portugal. We know how the rulers of the time behaved but the architectural beauty, in this case, is the integral part of this post.
