Basílica da Estrela

Lisbon, Portugal
4.7 / 19
The church, erected by order of Queen Mary, who was grateful to Heaven for the appearance of the long-awaited heir. The basilica is considered one of the most picturesque temples of Lisbon, it is built in the Baroque style with elements of neoclassicism. The temple began to be erected after the Lisbon earthquake (the queen was late in fulfilling the promise, since at that moment her son Jose was already 18 years old).
