This church has a very special aura about it. It is beautiful in its elegance and simplicity at the same time. I particularly wanted to visit this church since S. Anthony is known to be the saint of lost things, and I wanted to see if he could help me with losing things all the time! (I now carry an... More

Anthony was born in Lisbon even though he is more closely related to Padua, Italy. There is a small church on the birth site of the saint and a small museum next door. Both were worth a visit.

The italians say he's "the" saint! He was saint in Padua, but was born in Lisbon. If you're a catholic or religious in whatever way, you can't miss Saint Anthony's Church when visiting Lisbon, built in the place were he was born.

This church caught my eye on the way to the castle. We decided to stop by and it is beautiful inside but quite small and dark. I wouldn't plan a schedule for seeing it but if one has free time in their hands then it's worth a visit.

After a visit to the Cathedral across the road we walked past the building before realising it was Santo Antonio! It's a lovely little church with an ancient crypt and interesting tiling marking the visit of The Pope. Worth a visit!

This lovely church and museum are located not too far from the cathedral. It's an easy walk from the Rossio area. In other words, it's not a steep climb. The church marks the birthplace of Saint Anthony of Lisbon. In addition to relics and ecclesiastical treasures, there are items on display that mark the visit of Pope John Paul II.

This church is close to big cathedral Se de Lisboa. We found this church during going down from Castelo de Sao Jorge. The serenity is very quite, calm and religious inside. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in surrounding. It is free of charge as well.

Wonderful tribute to St. Anthony of Padova who was actually born here at this location The museum gives the life story of the Saint and there are volunteers who can explain the history and art. The original home of St. Anthony was beneath what is now the church.
