A church placed close to the Se de Lisboa(Lisbon Cathedral),at less than 200m.Not one of the most interesting churches of Lisbon,but worth a short visid.The facade is plain,white,not very impressive. The interior is more interesting,with a very nice decorated ceiling.

The present church is the reconstruction of the building from the 12th century which was destroyed by fire in the 14th century. It was additionally damaged by cyclone in 1600 and earthquake in 1755. Finally, it was rebuilt from its foundations in the 18th century....More

We've been past this church countless times and decided to pop in on Easter Monday. Very glad we did. The interior is beautiful and there is no charge to enter- nor was there a charge for the interesting exhibition about the Turin Shroud. Unfortunately it...More

As you would expect as with Rome there are large churches with magnificent interiors all around. It is not the best example I have seen but impressive none the less.

We visited it on the way to the Alfama Neighbourhood, Se cathedral and sao Jorge Castle. If you're hungry, as you face the church entry take the left road- Rua Madalena and go to the Adega de Manel- only locals eat here regularly!

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
