If you're in Lisbon, you'll likely visit the main cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), and the Alfama district, so it is worth to make a small detour to visit this small church of the patron saint of Lisbon

situated in one of the most ancient districts this church is dedicated to Santo Antonio the saint protector of the city of Lisbonne. Every year during the month of June the city celebrates the saint. It is the best period to visit and participate to a traditional event.

The church contains a crypt with a bone fragment of st Anthony. There are many steps and I did not see any wheelchair access. Try the museum next door also to learn more of the history of St Anthony

The inside of Santo Antonio de Lisboa is beautiful. Its just such a disappointment that tourists do not respect the signs that ask visitors not to use the flash on there cameras and to be quiet. It is a spectacular building.

It was very special for me to go there because it has a meaning to me. A peaceful place to pray. As a touristic stop is probably not among the top because surroundings are not nice. Still, I recommend to go, it will be a short stop. It is a historic place, built where San Antonio's parents used to live.

This is a must see for anyone visiting Lisbon. The miraculous image of St Anthony along with seeing the cross he traced on the wall when being tormented by Satan will be forever in our memories.

Perhaps we've seen to many churches in Portugal but I wasn't really impressed by this cathedral. Do not misunderstand, it is worth paying a visit but I 've seen more beautiful than this.

This is a nice church, irrespective of your personal beliefs, you are likely to find this place peaceful on the one hand, and on the other a place to admire, the architecture as well as the surrounding area.

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
