  • An old Church. You can go in, but much better from outside. You can approach it with an elevator or by walk. There are a lot of restaurants in nearby. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy the view. 🍷
  • One of the most beautiful churches in Lisbon! Definitely worth a visit. There is also a museum attached that is worth checking out as well. For those that celebrate Mass, they do have regular services. The church does close down in the evening so plan your visit accordingly. Worth checking out!
