Jerónimos Monastery of Santa Maria de Belém was commissioned by King Manuel I
in 1501 on the return of Vasco da Gama from his famous voyage to the east. Both the
King and Vasco Da Gama are buried there.

Jerónimos Monastery was originally built by Henry the Navigator to support pilgrims
who traveled in the region. It was expanded and elaborated from 1501 by architects
for King Manuel I of Portugal to serve as a resting-place for members of the House
of Aviz-Beja, and as a church for seafaring adventurers who embarked during the
Age of Discovery, following Vasco da Gama’s successful voyage to India.

It is now a national monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site, housing in addition
to the religious art and furniture from its past, artefacts and exhibitions including the
National Archaeological Museum and the Maritime Museum within its walls.
