St. Jeronimos Monastery

The churches in Portugal are uniquely beautiful in a way that is is ornate but not flashy or gilded. The Manueline style of architecture used to build the St. Jeronimos Monastery was a transitional style that combined Renaissance and Gothic elements. The building is architecturally closer to Gothic style with Renaissance ornaments decorating portals, church columns and closters.

Monastery of Jerónimos

The Monastery of Jerónimos (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) is an impressive example of Manueline architecture, a Portuguese style that flourished during the Age of Discovery. A maritime motif plays out in the intricate stone carvings of ropes and knots around every window and door frame. The monastery’s stonework, impressive 100-meter-long (329-foot-long) cloister and sheer scale indicate the immense wealth of 16th-century Portugal; construction was funded by a 5 percent tax on goods imported from the kingdom’s colonies in Africa and Asia.
