This church is not as well advertised as those around (Se or the Pantheon which are in the neighborhood). This is a pity - it is beautiful inside and outside. We were lucky to reach it during the religious service and it was an additional...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.

We stumbled upon this gorgeous church not really by accident, but we were absolutely amazed by this hidden gem. We were here on the 24th of December, which is a day where most places in Lisbon aren't open, or only operate for half a day....More

I would skip the church and just go to the cloisters. There's an entry fee (I think 5 euro), and you can go see some of the history of the church, as well as access the tombs to the last royal ruling family of Portugal...More

Graca & Sao Vicente
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
