The monastery lies on the site of a former chapel built by Prince Henry the Navigator (and dedicated to Santa Maria de Belém) where Vasco da Gama is thought to have prayed in 1497 before his epic voyage to India . Construction took nearly a century to complete and was overseen by several master builders, the most notable of whom was Diogo de Boitaca, replaced by João de Castilho in 1517. Diogo de Torralva and Jerónimo de Ruão were also instrumental in shaping the monastery's sumptuous appearance.
