The name Santa Maria de Belém, is derived from the Portuguese word for Bethlehem
and is a civil parish of the municipality of Lisbon, in central Portugal.

Chapel of Senhor dos Passos (The Passion of Our Lord), is located within Jerónimos
Monastery of Santa Maria de Belém
, which 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.
