  Monastery of Jeronimos at night
by J_Antunes
 
 

This monastery was built in the XVI century by the order of the Portuguese king D. Manuel I and is today part of the UNESCO World Heritage List and a milestone in the Portuguese history. Important symbol of the singularity of the Manueline style it was in the cloisters of this monument that Portugal signed the treaty of admission to the European Union. The monastery has an impressive church with huge worked columns (entrance to church is free), the cloisters are a peaceful and extremely beautiful, rational piece of architecture.

In other monastery wings you can find the archaeological museum and the Navy Museum.

The archeological museum has some statues, egyptian relics, golden works from the bronze and Iron Ages and roman mosaics and frequently hosts several temporary exhibits.

The Navy Museum has plenty of small models of Portuguese boats, the cabin of the Amelia yacht belonging to King Carlos and some real royal boats and hydroplanes ? including the one that has done the first air trip of the South Atlantic.
