É também o seu entorno que lhe confere beleza, uma das imagens de marca de Lisboa que enchem ímans, t-shirts, postais e os cartões de memórias das máquinas digitais de muitos que visitam a cidade ou que nela vivam mas apreciem fotografia. Falo claro da célebre foto do eléctrico 28 a passar em frente á Sé.
Portugal is a country full of beautiful churches, the Cathedral or the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the most important city of Lisbon seems, when compared to other less spectacular. But if we think of its history quickly understand the importance of visiting it.
It is also your surroundings that gives beauty, one of the hallmarks of Lisbon filling magnets, t–shirts, cards and memory cards of digital cameras of many visiting the city or you live in it but enjoy photography. I speak of course of the famous photo of the 28 tram passing in front of the Sé.
A Capela de S. Vincente presta homenagem á lenda e ao santo padroeiro da cidade.
Once inside, looks like a gloomy place that is gaining light as we walk towards the main chapel. What impresses the fact it was able to survive, we speak of a church that was built after the conquest of the city from the Moors by D. Afonso Henriques and his army. This means that the first construction is the twelfth century, but much has happened since then and the church has undergone several renovations that gave you different styles from Gothic to Romanesque.
Going in a chapel on the left side reveals a cabinet filled with riches. On the altar there is an organ of the gospel from the eighteenth century, decorated ceilings and lighter shades give this area more light that contrasts with the rest of the cathedral.
The Chapel of St. Vincent pays tribute to the legend and the city’s patron saint.
We ended up not visiting the cloisters, maybe next time.
