Nice photos. Thanks. I'm surprised to see so many signs and advertisements in English.

Thanks! Yes, it is a surprisingly international city. Most people can speak a few words English as well, though not very good.

BELÉM:

Belém, that means Bethlehem, is a former suburb, now a district, to the West of Lisbon's city center. It can be reached by Westbound trains. It is a wealthy district with many old, colourful buildings, hills and some famous sights. It has a long riverfront along Tagus River, facing the 25th of April Bridge and the Southern suburbs, and beaches. Belém has about 17 000 inhabitants. At least one whole day during any Lisbon trip, is required to explore Belém. The town center is centered around Rua de Junqueira and is filled with colourful, picturesque, old buildings. We also passed a small police station with several police cars.

Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (Jerónimos Monastery, also Hieronymites Monastery) is a huge former monastery in late gothic Manueline style, situated near the riverfront and town center of Belém. Part of the monastery is a beautiful church, Paróquia de Santa Maria de Belém, where you find the tomb of Vasco da Gama and the poet Camões, and the museum of natural history. The monastery was secularised in 1833 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The construction was completed in the 17th century, the building withstood the 1755 earthquek with only minor damage. The inner courtyard is very beautiful, with Manueline details. Both the monastery and the church is open to public.
Facing the monastery is the square park Jardim da Praca do Império. Next to it is the park Jardim de Belém, with Vasco da Gama Garden, where you find a small Thai temple, imported from Thailand.
