Estrela Basilica: Lisbon's landmark basilica




Postcard
“This vast neoclassical monument is one of Lisbon's most eye-catching landmarks.

Built in the second half of the 18th century to fulfill a vow by Queen Maria I after she gave birth to a son and heir, it has a huge rococo dome and a façade with twin bell towers decorated with an array of statues of saints and allegorical figures.
A pleasant way to reach Estrela is by taking trams 25 or 28, which stop right outside the basilica.”
