Monastery of Jerónimos
The construction of the Jerónimos Monastery began in 1501, on the orders of King Manuel I. Chosen as the royal pantheon and fi nanced by the fabulous wealth from India, this monumental construction is a brilliant synthesis of European late-Gothic and early renaissance trends. It is also of unquestionable technical mastery, especially the elegant and bold ribbed dome that covers the entire church. The Jerónimos Monastery has been classifi ed by UNESCO as a World’s Heritage site.
