I think this is the oldest church in Portugal. Interestingly, it's even an older site as Roman ruins have been discovered in the cloisters. It's a beautiful large church, at the heart of the medieval Alfama area. A must see.
History of this church compelled me to visit it. It is in the Alfama district and only a few blocks from where I was staying so it was very conveniently located. There are several chapels along each exterior wall some of which were very elaborate.
Lisbon has been the seat of a bishopric since the 4th century. Building between 1147, and into the 13th century, this Cathedral has a day's worth of interesting history in it! Don't miss St. Anthony of Padua Church across the street.
Lisbon Cathedral is a massive structure located on the Tram 28 route and easy to incorporate into a visit to the Alfama. There is lots of history here as original construction took place in the 12th century. The interior is impressive for its sheer size...More
I don’t know why people underrate the interior of this place. Beautiful burial effigies, statues, and medieval cathedral architecture. Highly recommend , also because it is in a cool area to walk around.
The exterior of the cathedral is interesting - almost like a fortress than a church. The rose window is really beautiful but as cathedrals go, I didn't think it was anything special. You can't really miss it if you're wondering around Lisbon so you might...More
Located on the hills in the Alfama neighbourhood, it is a spectacular cathedral. It is impossible to take the perfect picture because of the crowd.
But we loved it. Little trams pass by and you can shot a unique picture.
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
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
