All reviews la fontaine beautiful church renaissance style painted tiles patron saint open to the public tile work worth a visit steep walk great collection interesting place alfama district tejo river rainy day pantheon cistern prayer
If you only view the church it is free entry and it's a beautiful building both inside and outside. Definitely worth a quick look if in the area and the stonework inside is impressive if you're into architecture.
Can't explain how this site touched me the moment I stepped inside with the glorious sun pouring in and perhaps reminding me of what heaven may be like! I was moved to prayer - for all that is currently so wrong with our earth.
It's a somehow steep walk to reach this church. The facade is quite grand. However, the interior does not meet our expectations. Without much ornament, it has nothing particularly interesting. No photos allowed inside.
We went up to the church from the city center through narrow, pittoresque streets. It’s possible also to use the tram. The church is really beautiful, have an interesting museum and you have to take the steps up to the tower. From here you get...More
Beautiful, with a white façade and two bell-towers. The interior is nice but not very rich adorned and not one of the most impressive. On the roof it has a terrace with amazing views of the Tejo river and of the town(but the terrace can...More
The Church of São Vicente de Fora (specifically the church and not the monastery, which has its own Trip advisor listing) is probably more impressive from the outside that it is from the inside.

I find it to be one of the most impressive sites in Lisbon. I fail to understand how only few people were there when we visited I highly recommend to see the huge monastery with all the decorations in the different halls.
Igreja da Sao Vicente de Fora was a beautiful church of Renaissance architectural style. The front facade was particularly impressive. View of this church from the Castle at hilltop was stunning especially during sunset period.
This church is a very interesting place if you are into architecture. It´s style is late Renaissance, you can see it in its majestic façade and the general structure: a huge barrel vault, simplicity of lines, despite the altars and, especially its baldachin which are...More
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more
tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
