<font face=verdana>This Manueline masterpiece houses the <font color=red>tomb of Vasco de Gama<font color=black> and was the church at which the sailors and captains prayed before embarking on their voyages of discovery. The place is beautiful and imposing, but parts of the cloisters are under renovation currently.</font>

Address: Av. Brasília, 1400-038 Lisboa
Directions: <font face=verdana>Belém (take Tram 15 from the Baixa) -- it's easy, simple, and cheap, and great on a beautiful Sunday morning!</font>
