Igreja da Sao Vicente de Fora is a tremendous white building with three arches and statues decorating the façade. The inside impresses with more statues, a great altarpiece, sunlit cloisters and galleries with tiled walls. You see tiles everywhere, very beautiful. On one of the upper floors there are tiled panels relating La Fontaine’s fables, where pictures are accompanied with verbalized stories. You can climb to the roof to have a picture of the monastery from a different angle, and to enjoy breathtaking views of the city and Tejo river. Don’t miss fantastic banisters (see the pictures).
