The Manueline style South portal of the Monastery - not the main entrance.

The entrance is grand enough... Love those doors!

In a word... WOW!
Tom Wilson: Portugal is big on the WOW factor, Ray smile
That is some side/back door, Tom, what detail!
Tom Wilson: Yes, the Manueline style was REALLY decorative!

If this isn't even the main entrance then the structure must be one heck of a place Tom!
Tom Wilson: It's a huge monastery, Chris, which now houses two museums in its wings.
Let no stone remain uncarved eh Tom.
Tom Wilson: That's the Manueline style, Chad.

I am always intrigued by their entrances. There is so much to see. WOW indeed.
Tom Wilson: Put it on your must see list, Astrid.

Will you be showing the main entrance, too, Tom. This one looks superb enough to be it
Tom Wilson: Difficult to get a decent shot of the main entrance because of all the tourists and the various arrangements for channeling them in and out.

Very ornate - and to think it is not the main entrance.
Tom Wilson: If there's a stone, carve it, seems to be the motto of the Manueline school!
What great light you got this in (or achieves afterward). Such a grand sight.
Tom Wilson: It's pretty well SOOC, Mary.
A very impressive doorway.
Tom Wilson: It's impressive all round, Brian.
Not bad then for the tradesmen's entrance
Tom Wilson: The decoration on this place is amazing.
It's hard to believe that is not the main entrance, it is so ornate...
Tom Wilson: There's more than one like this, too!
