Next week we will be visiting the interior of this big church. Mosteiro is a monastary. This part is the church and to the left (out of the picture) an enormous building that housed the monks of the Hieronymite order. The architecture is heavily Manueline, so named after Dom Manuel I who had a great deal of architectural influence in Portugal's Golden Era. He is also the man who commissioned this building. Manueline style, means a lot of frills and detail in the decoration of a building. Here you can see some of it.
