Golden hour is one of our favourite times to visit the Jerónimos Monastery. The tourist buses disappear briefly, and the soft evening light frames the Manueline style façade of the building and the gardens become a calm wonderland.
The Jerónimos Monastery was built at the end of the 15th Century by order of King Manuel I. The story explains that the Portuguese King wanted the Monastery to be built in the place where Vasco da Gama spent his last night, before setting for the first journey to India.
If you come closer to the façade or visit the Jerónimos Monastery, you will likely notice many ornaments depicting maritime symbols e.g. ropes and anchors. There are small signs showing the close bond of the cloister discovery dates and the period after the monks were praying for the sailors to have a safe trip.
