Some spirit or art around the wind can be seen in the monastery of Sagreja de São Vicente de Fora, a beautiful and representative church with local art and painted tiles. The original building was built in 1147 and was named "the monastery of St....More
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.

Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama.
