Naomi: Hi I am Naomi and I am very excited to show you the world's greatest attractions.
What do a famous explorer's tomb, a beautiful architecture and a place of worship have in common? They can all be found in one amazing place, Jeronimos Monastery.
Founded in 1501 to commemorate Vasco De Gama's voyage, the monastery also houses his tomb. The Monastery also houses tombs of other notable people and is a monument to exploration. It's also religiously significant as the previous home to monks of the order of Saint Jerome.
Even excluding the past, Jeronimos Monastery is breath taking in its ornate beauty. Its vaulted arches and painted ceilings make it an architectural master piece. This beautiful building and fascinating site has been drawing visitors for hundreds of years.
