The Jeronimos Monastery struck me as one of the most impressive religious structures I’d seen in 50 years of European travel. The city tourist office calls Jeronimos Monastery the most prestigious place of worship in Lisbon.
The Monastery’s lush, ornate decoration makes stone seem as light as air.
The church of the monastic complex, dedicated to Santa Maria, is the most spectacular of the architectural sections.
The monastery contains the tomb of Vasco da Gama.
