We got our delicious pastry at Pastéis de Belém and ate them while strolling around the best market in Portugal. Since we’re already in Belém, it makes sense to visit one of the most famous tourist destinations in Lisbon, the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, or Jerónimos Monastery.
This is a pretty impressive building just from the outside, with so many intricate carvings and statues right at the entrance.
You can tell just how imposing the building is from how small the people looked standing near it.
The carvings on the exterior reminded me a lot of Canterbury Cathedral in the UK.
Let’s venture inside!
