Photographer's Note

The Jerónimos Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) is located in the Belém district of Lisbon, Portugal. It is classified with nearby Torre de Belém (you can see it here) a World Heritage Site.
The existing structure was started on the orders of Manuel I to commemorate Vasco da Gama's, Portuguese explorer, successful return from India. Construction of the monastery began in 1502 and took 50 years to complete
The monastery, like the nearby Torre de Belém, symbolizes the Portuguese Age of Discovery and is among the main tourist attractions of Lisbon.
