Destination Details

Lisbon, Portugal

The Jerónimos Monastery is the most accomplished example of the very Portuguese Manueline style and the decorative use of the symbols of the great Portuguese expeditions of the 15th and 16th centuries. The style represents a late Gothic expression, showing influences of the then modern Renaissance movement. It also reflects the manifold influences from other overseas cultures with which the pioneering Portuguese came into contact. See, for example, the Islamic-inspired solution for the vaulted ceilings in the church and the columns in the cloister, to name just a few of the many examples of architectural solutions and decorative elements.
