Beautiful church but the cloisters and bell towers are a must. Exquisite tiles, royal tombs and the climb to the bell tower roof worth every step. Marvellous views and very few tourists, 11:30 on a Saturday and only 6 had made including us. Not for...More

We went to the Monastery and we noticed some tourists sitting outside. Once we were in, the place was almost empty. There is a beautiful collection of tiles inside the building. We spent 40 minutes visiting inside, and then we climbed the stairs and went...More

Next to the church, you enter the monastery via the courtyard. Once inside, the monastery is huge and full of beautiful tiles and paintings.

Interesting museum and cloisters and wonderful tiles inside. But the star attraction is the wonderful view from the roof.

This visit was unexpectedly interesting. Not only was the piano and the spirit of the place amazing, the wall tiles showing La Fontaine's tales are worth spending much time on. Not too touristy, excellent value for money, helpful staff.

Found this quite by accident, and was so glad we did. There is much to see here, including many wall tiled murals, depicting scenes from every walk of life. There is a lot of stairs to climb but they are wide and relatively easy, until...More

Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.
Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a
spectacular option for those looking for a more

I agree. Perhaps it is better to skip the climb. It takes a while to get to the top

Yes, it will be a climb. Recommend taking Tram 28 at the Praca do Comercio if you have the time (and it's not too crowded) - the 40 min loop will take you right by the Mosteiro.
