But a guide or an information booklet would really help this place out. Worth visiting if you're in the area though.

A well-worth visit, this Church has sublime architecture and, with no service taking place, was an oasis of calm and tranquility

Igreja da Sao Vicente de Fora is one of the finest churches in Portugal. It was constructed at the beginning of the 17th century in a bold Renaissance style. The two tower facade is particularly striking.

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
