  • Its a lovely and peaceful place to go right in the middle of the city. This church is dedicated to Saint Anthony. The church is very nice. It’s a small church. The church is built where Saint Anthony was born. If you go downstairs you can see the exact place where Saint Anthony was born. Very nice place to visit. This church is close to Lisbon Cathedral.
  • It is the most gorgeous place. Its very calming inside the church. There is the place where St Antonio's was born. The church sells bread, that don't get expired. If you have the chance, you should buy it.
