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

4.0
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.

  • One the greatest monuments to visit in Lisbon, with a very worthy paid-for ticket allowing to see the treasury as well as more of the chapels. The free tour of the cathedral in itself is still a must see when visiting Lisbon. It is easily access by being right in the centre and having its own tram stop.
  • I'm not religious at all quite far from it, but this is a must see. Inside the church is fascinating and showed lots of history. Of youre into archeology like myself, then you will enjoy this place.
