  • A cathedral from the 1500s, who would imagine? Beautifully rendered with unusual side-stalls and every centimeter is hand painted or carved.  more »
  • Was there today. Can confirm it is open and is free. Inside lots of gold! Pop in. Pop out. Snap snap.  more »

  • An old Church. You can go in, but much better from outside. You can approach it with an elevator or by walk. There are a lot of restaurants in nearby. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy the view. 🍷
  • One of the most beautiful churches in Lisbon! Definitely worth a visit. There is also a museum attached that is worth checking out as well. For those that celebrate Mass, they do have regular services. The church does close down in the evening so plan your visit accordingly. Worth checking out!
