Santo Antonio de Lisboa, Lisbon
(4.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
One of the city's major landmarks, Santo Antonio de Lisboa features an easily recognizable front facade blending elements of both Baroque and Neoclassical architectural styles. According to local legend, the church marks the birthplace of St. Anthony, revered as a matchmaker and protector of young brides. Designed by architect Mateus Vicente de Oliveira and completed in the 1760s, the church notably includes a large altarpiece depicting a scene in which the saint holds baby Jesus in his arms. The square in front of the church features a statue of St. Anthony dedicated by Pope John Paul II in 1982.

  • This is a church built on the site where Saint Anthony was born. The exterior is not so nice, still interesting and in stile with the surrounding buildings, The interior on the other hand is beautiful...  more »
  • Fell upon this by chance, St Anthony was born here. An alter set up to his honour in the tiny crypt. The pope came to this crypt to visit. Early baroque church

  • A tiny church by the side of Santo António's museum
  • Awesome!
  • Mais uma igreja lindíssima em Lisboa!
  • Church of Saint of Antonio of Lisbon (of course not Padua), you can still the Holy of Church visit, where Santo António stayed in his room. Saint Antónios is patron of the city folk favorite of Saint in Lisbon, so as the population (Saint Vinzent is actually, none but knows that). On 13 June is celebrated hard in Lisbon. Tomorrow the procession goes by this church out to the old town.
