This was one of my favorite cathedrals in Lisbon!! I would recommend to all and think it's definitely better than seeing the Se.

This church has been damaged by fire and earthquake and is very scarred. This makes it much more interesting and atmospheric than the gold interiors we had previously seen in Portuguese churches. Free to enter and you can take pictures.

This church has been destroyed a few times in earthquakes and finally it had a large fire. The church was rebuilt but the damage to the walls is still very much in evident. It is fascinating to see that and an amazing place.

Incredible church with a haunting exterior that captures the damage of the 1755 earthquake. Nice for a peaceful break on a walking tour of the Baixa.

The most spectacular church I've ever seen. No decorations and totally stripped back to the walls after a fire that you felt totally at peace. There was a christening on while we were there with a gentlemen singing and the acoustics were amazing. The statue...More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
