One of the most beautiful churches in the city was founded in 1147 and rebuilt in 1582 outside the city walls (hence “on the outside” in its name). The church is famous for the world’s largest collection of tiles (more than one hundred thousand tiles...More

Igreja da Sao Vicente de Fora is one of the finest churches in Portugal. It was constructed at the beginning of the 17th century in a bold Renaissance style. The two tower facade is particularly striking.

Enjoyed a morning walking around the cloister and soaking in the history. Then we made our way to the tower and enjoyed spectacular views of Lisbon

Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides
