    The receptionist at my hotel said that this was the only tourist attraction in Lisbon that he would pay to get in to - and I totally agree! Such a beautiful building with lots of intricate details.

    You can buy your tickets in advance online, or buy at the venue.

    Be warned though, as there’s two queues for tickets (one for the monastery and one for the museum). Then there’s another queue further along for entrance into the monastery.

    I saw a lot of people waiting in line at the entrance, only to be turned away at the door, as they’d mistakenly assumed they were in line for ticket purchases.

    Once you exit the monastery, you can then visit the exquisite church adjacent to the monastery.

    Definitely worth visiting both of these beautiful attractions.

    As part of our hidden gems tour we visited here with its many chapels, which were certainly something to look at. Not exactly subtly adorned with all manor of gold and cherubs they are certainly an acquired taste.

    Worth it for the photos but 10-15 mins is probably enough time.

    Right in the center of Lisbon, this used to be a place for royal weddings. Having survived two earthquakes and a one major fire, I suppose this 1240’s built church was built well. The restoration after the 1959 fire left behind a lot of the signs of the fire and that is just one of it’s charms. Made extensively with rose marble on the inside, this church is a lot more somber feeling than many others but if you look closely, still a lot of very ornate details. It is very beautiful but in a very different way that most the the ostentatious counterparts across the country and Europe. A quick stop here for a few minutes to check out this stalwart of the neighborhood would be a good option.

    We enjoyed our entire visit here, the monastery and the church. The architecture is grand and you can see this site from much of the rest of the old city. And all the tile work is very impressive. Plan to spend some time to see it all.

    I wouldn't really say that this was a pretty square, more atmospheric. Nice to people watch. The convent is located there and there are a few coffee shops and restaurants as well. Busy.

    Only open a couple of hours a day, but well worth seeing. Had a very informative one-on-one tour. Church is beautiful and not as crowded as other attractions.

    The Mosque was beautiful and accomodating for ladies. Only negative remark is the toilet was not people friendly, bad smells from drainage, no toilet roll and good be kept better (only reason I had to go for a 4). Wudhu facilities were nice though!

    Food downstairs was amazing, got the steak and grilled chicken. Definitely a must.

    This is a wonderful building housing a wonderful museum. The collection of tiles covers centuries of beautiful art. The Lisbon Panorama is worth the entrance fee alone. The serenity of the site is so lovely. Well worth half a day in Lisbon.

    The Monastery of Sao Pedro de Alcantara is located a few meters from the Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara towards Jardim do Principe Real. From the outside, the facade is very modest, but from the inside it is beautiful. The Monastery of Sao Pedro de Alcantara was founded by the first Marques de Marialva, who in 1665 swore to build a monastery dedicated to São Pedro de Alcântara if the Portuguese armies won the Battle of Montes Claros during the so-called restoration war. In 1680, the construction of a monastery belonging to the Franciscan Order began. In 1755, a great earthquake destroyed the monastery, which was partially rebuilt. The single-nave church preserves paintings from the Joanino period, distinguished by the baroque azulejos depicting the history of Sao Pedro de Alcantara. This cycle of azulejos is in perfect condition. Part of the monastery can be visited on the weekend with a guide. Beautiful building that deserves a visit.

    The Memorial Church, classified as a national monument, is located in Ajuda, Lisbon. A beautiful neoclassical church with baroque decorations. The main facade of the church is crowned with a triangular pediment. Work on its construction began around May 1760, and the first ceremony was celebrated on September 3, 1760. Its white dome, although smaller in size, is reminiscent of another Lisbon church, the Estrela Basilica.It has a marble-clad interior, a small chapel, and the tomb of Marquês de Pombal, the 18th-century leader responsible for the rebuilding of Lisbon after the 1755 earthquake. Worth a visit, if you nearby.

    The Cross of Arroios...sculpted in stone and located in front of a church, I took a quick look inside but not much too see, basically a big and rather empty concrete box

    One of the lesser visited viewpoints in Lisbon (there are just too many I guess) but nevertheless worth the hike up, good views over the rooftops, especially on a sunny day, with a couple of benches to relax
