The Jeronimos Monastery was declared a National Monument in 1907 and, in 1983, UNESCO classified it as "Cultural Heritage of Humanity"
This is a HDR image of the three-aisled church of the monastery.
Near where the Infante D. Henrique in the mid XV century , had built a church on the invocation of Sta. Maria de Belém, wanted King Manuel I built a large monastery. To perpetuate the memory of Prince, for his great devotion to Our Lady and belief in St. Jerome, D. Manuel I decided to found in 1496, the Monastery of Sta. Maria de Belém, near the town of Lisbon, near River Tagus. Donated to the monks of the Order of St. Jerome, is today commonly known as the Jeronimos Monastery.
The monastery is a cultural reference that did not escape nor to artists, travelers and chroniclers during its five centuries of existence. Was host and burial of kings, later poets. Today is admired by every one of us, not only as a remarkable piece of architecture but as an integral part of our culture and identity.
