Photographer's Note

Here is a part of the main court of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos in Lisbon.
Founded on January 1501 After King Manuel 1st, asked the pope in 1496, for permission to build a monastery to commemorate Vasco de Gama's successful voyage to India. The project was funded by treasures from explorations in Africa, Asia, and South America.
This is a typical Manueline architecture, found in Portugal from the discoveries era.
In the 2 WS attached is a look through one arc, and a fountain in front of the Mosteiro, and here is a picture I posted of the Nave de St. Maria de Bele'm , that is a part of the great monument.
