Don't miss this when you go and see the Castle of Saint George, very nice gothic church and the archelogical site inside is fascinating.

This is another important landmark in Lisbon and it's very close to Castelo de São Jorge and the National Pantheon. You should save one day from your trip in Lisbon in order to visit them.

I've been inside more impressive churches. Nothing too impressive here but it's part of history and free so.... Why not?

Having visited temples, mosques, cathedrals and churches,Se de Lisboa in my mind will not be counted among the most interesting ones. Ok to have been there but does not leave you breathless like some of the others I've been to

Free to visit. Was amazed at the really high ceilings and I mean really high. Some wonderful stained glass and paintings, as well as some ceiling decoration, but on the whole fairly stark.

Didn't realise this was the main cathedral until afterwards, that's how un-imposing it is, bit surprised for the capital city

Of all the places visited, this has the greatest mashup of gothic and mod, history and today. It's not just the church, which is a stellar representation of 900-year-old architecture. The streetcar line in front of the church, in the old world lemonade stand, mashes together with the chic Italian restaurant inside of the church, which straddles its tables alongside... More

Wonderful design. Many nice paintings inside the church. Amazing surrounding area to walk. I've been here in Sunday afternoon and it was for free.

Lots and lots of history and architecture styles. There is no charge for the main church. Pay the €2.5 for the cloisters, the archeological site dates back to the Phoenicians including parts from the Moors, Romans, etc. Go along the edges to see the many beautiful chapels.

Lisbon’s main Catholic Cathedral, a classic of medieval architecture. You can take an electric tram (the old fashioned ones) and just stop off very near the Cathedral. If you take the special tourist tram (well worth it) you can hop on and hop off. The Cathedral is the official seat of the Patriarch, attributed to the bishop of Lisbon since... More
