TODAYS MILEAGE – 12 miles or 19 kilometres
TRIP MILEAGE – 12,500 miles or 20,117 kilometres

We took the short walk to the corner to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mosteiro da Santa Maria de Belém, a large monastery located on the banks of the Tagus river, just outside Lisbon and dates from 1496.

The Jerónimos Monastery, as it is commonly known, replaced a church that had existed on the same site. It was dedicated to Santa Maria de Belém and in it the monks of the Order of Christ provided spiritual guidance to seafarers.
