Santo Antonio de Lisboa, Lisbon
(4.4/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • The beautiful Cathedral is in free tour. The cloister (rather a small archaeological site) and Treasury are paying visits. The set is very interesting.

  • I visited the Church after seeing the know. San Antonio is a more recent construction, with an unusual seating arrangement, with a high quality Cabinet work. During my visit I met few faithful with a ceremony (mass). While the cure officiating, the acolyte, a young, sang with a voice excellent, continuously. The architectural environment, dark woods, the sobriety of the rite and the singing ceremony was a show. I don't know if it is common to this way of celebrating the mass.

  • Very fancy looking church. Really worth of visit. Do not miss "lucky statue" next to it in the same square.

  • 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.
