Although the construction of the Jerónimos Monastery begun in 1501, during the reign of D. Manuel I, it took almost a century to finish it. Its architecture style is a mix of late Gothic with Renaissance, denominated by Manueline decoration. The building commemorates the golden age of the Portuguese Discoveries and is a symbol of the Portuguese culture and national identity. It was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.
