Description

The Monastery is an icon of Lisbon's landscape, part of the city’s history and is a symbol of the royal power of different ruling dynasties in Portugal. It was founded by D. Afonso Henriques in the 12th century and rebuilt by D. Filipe I (II of Spain) in the 16th century, being today one of the best examples of the Mannerism style in Portugal. This monument was later reappropriated by successive kings of the Bragança Dynasty, presenting today an unparalleled heritage in the country: the largest collection of baroque glazed tiles in their original place (in situ); a medieval cistern that still works ; a sacristy whose walls are fully decorated with inlaid marbles; the Royal Pantheon of the Bragança Dynasty, where the last Portuguese royal family is entombed; an exhibition of 38 fables written by Jean de La Fontaine depicted in glazed tile panels and a magnificent panoramic view over the city and the river. These are just some of the gems you can find inside and that can be explored by visiting the Monastery
