Jerónimos Monastery – Sept. 13, 2022

  • Day 3: Lisbon
  • Weather: 65-80 degrees / blue skies with clouds, windy

The Jerónimos Monastery was built to commemorate Vasco da Gama. He was the first European to sail around Africa to India. Vasco da Gama died in India during his third voyage. His body, albeit well salted, was brought back to be buried at Jerónimos Monastery.

What luck to be at the right spot at the right time for this unscheduled event.
