VIRTUAL GUIDED TOUR | Jerónimos Monastery | ONLINE | FREE
While the city is on semi-lockdown indefinitely, DGPC — aka the General Directorate of Cultural Heritage of Portugal, aka leader in the fight for Portugal’s soul in the face of COVID-19 — has joined forces with Google Arts and Culture to make sure that you get your daily dose of art, history, and culture.
One pretty big piece of Portuguese history is the Jerónimos Monastery in Belém. The first brick for it was laid on King’s Day (January 6th) in 1501, or 519 years ago. Today, you can use Google to learn what’s been happening there since then.
