“Interesting History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

It's church sits on the site of the home tHat the saint was born. Torn down and rebuilt over the same site. Very beautiful paintings and gilded walls and statues. Don't miss the side door to the CRIPT a must see room where he priest prepares for mass. The walls are covered with tiles and silver candelabras.

“Much More Than a Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

One of Lisbon simbols, This Church sits on the actual place where Lisbon's most popular Saint was born and raised. After admiring the Church whether Catholic or not you may visit the catacombs where the Pope John Paul II prayed on May 12th 1982 just before a life threatening attempt on the day after at Fatima Sanctuary. Just next door don't miss the visit to the small museum around Saint Anthony's popular devotion.

If you are about to mary go there and wish the best for that once of a lifetime enterprise because he will give you a hand.

“A crazy feast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

St Antonio is a BIG street party! It is complete madness for one day, but the party lasts for many. In Alfama you can enjoy cheap and typical portuguese food, with Sardines beeing the bestseller.
However, be aware that this is crowded, and not for the unfit or very very young.

“Important Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The original Church of Santo Antonio was destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. The new church was constructed by the architect Mateus Vicente in 1767. Newly married couples visit the church on their wedding day and leave flowers so that the saint will bring good luck to their marriage.
