Isn't a hot spot in Lisbon, but we need to go. The light inside with some nice colors are awesome. In the other side of the Street there a Park, veru nice place to take children,
This impressive basilica was completed in 1790. It includes a lovely nave and a nice looking dome to match. The colors that dominate the basilica's interior are brown and yellow, which we found quite unusual, yet interesting. The acoustics in the basilica is great with just the right amount of reverberation. A 15-minute visit out to do it for this... More
If you are in the area it is nice to pop your head in, but I wouldn't make a special trip. There are lots of these dotted around unexpectedly but this is the largest and best. You can walk top also.
There are definitely an incredible amount of highly decorated churches and buildings in Lisbon and this is on the list!

The Basilica is very beautiful from the outside but on the inside, it's nothing special and is quite small. The guards inside also don't let you walk around freely. It's a featured attraction but you'll be done in under 15 mins.
It still amazes me how people all those years ago without the machinery we have today could build things of such staggering beauty, scale and decoration. The carving, the marble, the colours, the huge soaring height of it; this is a beautiful building well worth seeing. It glows a brilliant white from the outside in the sun. I'm not a... More
