Jerónimos Monastery history

Being symbolically linked to one of the most important moments of national recollection, the Monastery of Jerónimos (or the Royal Monastery of Saint Mary of Belém), was founded by King D. Manuel I in the beginning of the 16th century. Works began precisely at the turn of the century as the first stone was laid on the symbolic date of 6 January (Kings’ day) of 1501 or 1502. The monastery was donated to the Hieronymus monks, who stayed on till the second quarter of the 19th century. It is a true “chant” to the Manueline style, as can be seen by the profusion of religious, nautical and regal elements that have been perpetuated in stone. Apart from its Manueline church, the monastic complex still preserves most of the magnificent structures that contributed to its international recognition, including its 16th-century Cloister, the former monks’ Refectory and the former Library.
