Se de Lisboa ( Igreja de Santa Maria Maior ), Lisbon

3.8
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.

  • It is nice to see more inside that out and you can get free, unless you want to see an extra Hall you have to pay. I would see it and now...

  • Is especially characteristic is not a cathedral, and large stained-glass Windows on the second floor, was beautiful. There are most memorable.

  • One of the oldest churches in Lisbon, built outside of great splendor, can see the traces of the past and the significance of the church. Into the church for free, you can donate a little bit of money in the church wax candles to pray for his family. The Bible display and museum are subject to payment. Well-known 28-year-old electric car just in the doorway of the church, the slope will go ahead, and attract many people to take a church as the background of the old electric car, very much the atmosphere.
