We recommend that you take the public transport because it’s stress-free and very direct. The only downside we found was during rush hour, otherwise we enjoyed the ride.
Great for couples & families
There’s a lot to enjoy at the Jerónimos Monastery and you don’t need to be a big history buff either. For instance, couples can enjoy the romantic architecture and paintings. Kids will surely enjoy discovering every nook and cranny, almost like a labyrinth inside the monastery.
As you enter the mini-village, you’ll notice many restaurants. Depending on your arrival time, we recommend that you grab a drink and find space on the terrace. We chose to order from ‘Cafe na Fabrica’.
We recommend that you make your way through the main entrance, and start with the first floor. This way you’ll enjoy corridors, detailed pillars, hidden rooms and centre square. Then make your way up to the second level where you’ll get a nice upper level view of the monastery, visit the souvenir shop and find a glorious view of the chapel.
