Basílica da Estrela

Free Admission
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.

The spacious pink and black marble interior contains an elaborate Empire-style tomb of Queen Maria I, and an impressive Christmas manger composed of more than 500 figures.

It is also possible to go up to the dome for fantastic city views.

A pleasant way to reach Estrela is by taking trams 25 or 28, which stop right outside the basilica.
