  • One of the places of visit not to be missed well perro do Chiado the Basilica da Estrela (or Real Basilica and Convent of the Holy Heart of Jesus) is a Catholic Temple and former convent of Carmelite nuns located in the city of Lisbon, in Portugal. This vast Church, surmounted by a dome, stands high on a hill on the West side of the city, being one of the landmarks of the area of Lapa, and lends its name to the parish of the same name.

  • Is located in the neighbourhood of Chiado and is wonderful, deserving all our attention. A roof with a beautiful and captivating painting. In addition there are images of several Saints of our devotion, especially Saint James and Saint Anthony.

  • The Church of the martyrs, founded in 1147, was, at first, a small chapel on Mount Fragoso, current High in San Francisco. Was restored three times: in 1589, in 1664, and in 1746. However, in 1755 everything collapsed, because of the earthquake that hit the city. The new basilica was built in 1769, in rua Garrett, where was the chapel of the Bom Jesus of forgiveness, which was incorporated into the new Church. It is a Baroque style church, made from scratch, designed by the architect Reinaldo Manuel dos Santos. The baptismal font is an original piece pré-terremoto, having been retrieved intact of the primitive Basilica: it were baptized people distinguished and historical personalities, among them the poet Fernando Pessoa, in 1888. It is a beautiful church, with its eight side chapels and painting on the ceiling of the body of the ship by the painter Pedro Alexandrino. The tour is free, but there is a little booklet for sale-I bought-whose purchase is not required, but it helps in the maintenance of the Church. Worth the visit.

  • Beautiful church in the hart oh Chiado. The splendid ceilings are the work of Pedro Alexandrino de Carvalho and his follower Jose Antonio Narciso.
  • Absolutely beautiful church. I'd go as far as to say it's more stunning inside than Lisbon's cathedral.
  • This could be the most beautiful church I've ever seen.. Well the most unexpected beauty.
  • Great
  • Another beautiful church :)
