Black & white photography – Jerònimos Monastary. Lisbon, Portugal (9 photos)


One of the most impressive buildings in Belem is without no doubt the Jerònimos Monastary. It is richly decorated with Manueline ornamentation and Gothic architecture. Built in 1502. One of the great Portugeese navigators was Vasco da Gama. Along with several other famous people he is burried in the church belonging to the monastary. I have chosen black and white and picked photos more focused on people visiting.

The monks who once lived here was here for the seafares who anchored close by. The monastary is only a short walk from the mouth of the Tagus river. Before an expedition the seamen could spend time here praying. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is huge! It's easy to spend hours here.
