The Monastery of the Hieronymites (Jerónimos) was built by King Manuel I of Portugal in 1501 on the site of an earlier church, Santa Maria de Belém, on the banks of the River Tagus at the entrance of Lisbon. It was built in the Manueline architectural style, particular to Portugal, with elements of the Late Gothic and Renaissance periods. Its role was to pray for the King’s eternal soul, and to provide spiritual assistance to navigators and sailors who set sail to discover the world.
