Se de Lisboa ( Igreja de Santa Maria Maior ), Lisbon
(3.9/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Medieval outside, and embracing Romanesque- and Gothic-styles from the inside, Se de Lisboa ( Igreja de Santa Maria Maior ) preserves sacred objects, including the casket with the remains of Lisbon's patron saint, St. Vincent. Since its original construction in 1147, the building has been damaged numerous times by earthquakes and fires. Today you can see traces of centuries-old fragments through the renovations. Notice the cloisters that were once gardens and today serve as cherished Roman, Arab and medieval excavation sites. Visit the cathedral to view its dark and mystical aisles and vaults, and see three Gothic tombs from the 14th century. Make Se de Lisboa ( Igreja de Santa Maria Maior ) a centerpiece of your Lisbon vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lisbon travel itinerary maker.

  • The Gothic-like style makes it extremely pleasant monument to admire, among others of secondhand be well preserved. At night the lighting makes it even more fascinating. A fascinating cathedral in the heart of the Alfama district. before passing every few minutes the famous tram 28, which connects the historic center to the Estrela Basilica. Do not miss a visit to the cloister.
  • A great place to visit. The tresor and the ruins are also great, you feel the history, however you have to pay an entrance fee for it.
  • Nice place but tiring
  • Beautiful, old church with free entry. Ceiling is so high and quick and easy walkthrough.
  • There are more beautiful churches in Lisbon than this over visited chathedral.
