Refectory Ceiling of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos

This is our entry in Lost in Translation’s BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: CEILING.

This photo shows part of the refectory ceiling of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, a monastery in the Belém district of western Lisbon, Portugal.  This magnificent monastery was built in the Manueline architectural style (named for King Manuel I) and survived the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755. Vasco de Gama, the famous explorer, and other Portuguese notables are buried here.
