Can't explain how this site touched me the moment I stepped inside with the glorious sun pouring in and perhaps reminding me of what heaven may be like! I was moved to prayer - for all that is currently so wrong with our earth. The...More

It's a somehow steep walk to reach this church. The facade is quite grand. However, the interior does not meet our expectations. Without much ornament, it has nothing particularly interesting. No photos allowed inside.

We went up to the church from the city center through narrow, pittoresque streets. It’s possible also to use the tram. The church is really beautiful, have an interesting museum and you have to take the steps up to the tower. From here you get...More

Beautiful, with a white façade and two bell-towers. The interior is nice but not very rich adorned and not one of the most impressive. On the roof it has a terrace with amazing views of the Tejo river and of the town(but the terrace can...More

The Church of São Vicente de Fora (specifically the church and not the monastery, which has its own Trip advisor listing) is probably more impressive from the outside that it is from the inside. A very impressive white façade, built in the architectural style known...More

So many beautiful churches in this city. This one is very easy to get to as you walk along the waterfront. Another gorgeous facade as well.

I find it to be one of the most impressive sites in Lisbon. I fail to understand how only few people were there when we visited I highly recommend to see the huge monastery with all the decorations in the different halls.

Igreja da Sao Vicente de Fora was a beautiful church of Renaissance architectural style. The front facade was particularly impressive. View of this church from the Castle at hilltop was stunning especially during sunset period.

You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.
Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a
spectacular option for those looking for a more
