    Stop At: Igreja de Santo Antonio, Largo de Santo Antonio da Se, Lisbon 1100-401 Portugal

    This church rises above the birthplace of St. Anthony, before leaving the world as a preacher, eventually dying in Padua. The present temple was built in 1767 where a chapel had existed since the 15th century. It offers as noteworthy elements the image of the saint patron, spared by the earthquake, the crypt with his birthplace and the canvas depicting St. Anthony with the most authentic features that remain. It was visited by Pope St. John Paul II in 1982.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Castelo de S. Jorge, Rua de Santa Cruz do Castelo, Lisbon 1100-129 Portugal

    The first occupation of the hill where today stands the castle of St. George dates from the century. VII A.C .. Of Moorish fortification, the castle became the royal residence after the conquest of the city by D. Afonso Henriques. This remained until the construction of Paço da Ribeira, in Terreiro do Paço, where the royal family moved in 1503. As a military and civil structure, the castle underwent several transformations until the great intervention of 1938-40, which sought to return the character of the old medieval fortification and gave it the look we know of it today. Due to its privileged geographical position, the castle is also one of the best viewpoints in Lisbon, from where we can enjoy a magnificent view of the city. The castle owes its name to the patron saint of the English Crusaders, who helped the first Portuguese king during the conquest of the city from the Moors.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Mosteiro De Sao Vicente De Fora, Largo Sao Vicente, Lisbon 1100-572 Portugal

    The Church of São Vicente de Fora stands as an emblematic image of Philip I's architectural patronage, after having ascended to the Portuguese throne. The church of São Vicente de Fora originated in a monastery erected in 1147 by D. Afonso Henriques for the veneration of São Vicente, patron of Lisbon. The expression on the outside results from being outside the wall, which then protected the city. It was renovated in 1527 in the reign of King John III. But it was only with D. Filipe I (the first of the Spanish kings in Portugal) that - for the sake of political legitimation - the church and the monastery were refounded, adding to them the function of the royal pantheon. This work was due to Juan de Herrera (author of El Escorial Madrid) and was executed, between 1582 and 1627, by Baltazar Álvares and Filippo Terzi. After the national restoration, D. João V had an imposing Baroque altar added to the main chapel of the church, which highlights eight monumental images of white painted wood.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Panteao Nacional Campo de Santa Clara, Lisbon 1100-471 Portugal

    The Church of Santa Engrácia was founded in 1568, by order of Infanta D. Maria, daughter of King D. Manuel I, but nothing remains of the temple of that time. In 1663 a contest was made for the design of a new church, won by architect João Antunes. It will then be one of the first works of baroque content in the country, with a privileged location and open view over the Tagus River. Of large proportions and with a centralized model defining a Greek cross plan (square plan), it evokes the Italian temple of San Pietro in Montorio and San Satiro in Milan, by Donato Bramante. Due to various vicissitudes, among which the architect's death and the 1755 earthquake, the works only finished in the mid century. XX, already as National Pantheon, a function assigned to it in 1916. Because it took so long to build, it entered the popular vocabulary to designate anything that takes a long time to do. It is then said that "they resemble the works of Holy Engracia."

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Miradouro da Graca, Largo da Graca São Vicente, Lisbon 1170-165 Portugal

    Known as viewpoiint Graça, from 2009 adopted the name of one of the most important Portuguese poets of the twentieth century and was renamed Miradouro Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen. This tribute came 5 years after his death, as it was in this place that Sophia spent many of her days admiring Lisbon. This is a privileged place from which you can glimpse the whole city. To get an idea, from the top of Graça Hill you can see São Jorge Castle, Santa Justa Lift, Carmo Convent, 25 de Abril Bridge, São Pedro de Alcântara Viewpoint, Mouraria, Martim Moniz, Monsanto (the lung of the city), the Mulberry trees, the Eduardo VII Park, the Senhora do Monte Viewpoint, the Tagus ... Is the list going long? Believe me that other points of interest are still missing! Better, just seeing. If I can't do it soon, we will help. You can make a Virtual Visit here. Facing the viewpoint overlooking the city and the Tagus, is the Graça Church and Convent, classified as a National Monument, whose construction dates back to 1271.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Miradouro da Senhora do Monte, Largo do Monte, Lisbon 1170-107 Portugal

    Viewpoint Senhora do Monte , located in the Graça district, offers a unique panorama, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful views of Lisbon, especially because it is one of the highest points in the city. The half-moon shape gives a broader view of Lisbon, from which you can see the Graça Church, the Tagus estuary and the other bank, São Jorge Castle and the roofs of Mouraria. Further on, the lower Pombaline, the ruins of the Convento do Carmo, the Serra de Monsanto and the Penha de França. These points are marked on a tiled panel in the viewpoint, so that visitors can identify the monuments.
