What a terrific piece of history. This is a definite must do. This only takes an hour or so but work it into your trip.

This ancient gothic church is roofless, and open to the sky. It is however, quite beautiful. We visited on a sunny day which was perfect for photos. There is also a small but interesting museum attached to it.

What remains of this religious structure is testament to those who built it before it was partially destroyed by the earthquake of 1755. Inside, the roofless convent offers a view to the heavens. There is a calming feeling about it and it’s worth sitting for...More

Exhibits in the interior provide a glimpse back into the earlier days of capital. Loads of artifacts from the Roman era for aficionados of that era.

This is such a beautiful location! Don't miss it! I was there in September 2019 and they were having a beautiful light show at night that month. The light show was just ok but parts of it were very neat.

A very unique yet very interesting ruin, you can't help but be impressed by the remains of this great church, on a sunny day when we visited we really impressed by its eerie but beautiful appearance.

This was hands down my favourite thing we saw while in Lisbon! It was an unexpected wonder. The cathedral is lovely- it’s personality stands out and shines despite the ruin. It’s warm and inviting and so much history. The museum was the perfect size- big...More

This visit was so much more than I was expecting. I thought we'd walk through the shell of the building, so didn't expect to see much beyond that. The museum in the back was utterly engrossing with so much to see. Be sure to watch...More

We didn’t even have this on our list when going to Lisbon, we sort of stumbled across it and were so glad we did. It was spectacular. The history and architecture are mind blowing - it didn’t seem real. It Can’t recommend enough.

The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used

We used Uber in Lisbon and it was great because the possible language problem was abrogated by the app. We also found Lisbon very walkable but do not know where these locations are
