Lisbon Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa) Tours

Lisbon Cathedral dates back to 1150 when it was built to celebrate the defeat of the Moors. Although the Romanesque building suffered earthquake damage over the years, it’s been carefully restored. Visitors can see excavated Roman ruins, the font where St. Anthony of Padua was christened, and relics of Lisbon’s patron saint, St. Vincent.

The Basics
As one of Lisbon’s major landmarks, Sé Cathedral is included in most city sightseeing tours, along with other notable attractions like the Castle of São Jorge, St. Anthony of Padua Church, the Alfama district, and the Tower of Belem. While the cathedral itself is free, the cloister charges a small entrance fee.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • See the cathedral as part of a small-group or private city tour.
  • The cathedral is free to enter, but it’s worth paying the small fee to tour the Gothic cloister.
  • Remember to dress respectfully, as this remains a functioning religious site.

How to Get There
There are several ways to reach the cathedral, located in Baixa. Ride the metro to Rossio station, just a short walk away, or hop aboard Lisbon’s quaint yellow tram—Route 28 passes right in front of the cathedral.

When to Get There
The Lisbon Cathedral is open daily to visitors, and there isn’t really a bad time to visit. If you want to see the cathedral in action, plan to attend an evening mass (in Portuguese).

Other Attractions in Baixa
The cathedral sits in the heart of the Baixa, Lisbon’s bustling downtown and a candidate for UNESCO World Heritage status. While in the neighborhood, take a stroll along the grand Rua da Augusta, ride the wrought iron Elevador Santa Justa lift, climb the Arco da Rua Augusta for panoramic views, and sip some ginja (a sweet cherry-like liqueur).
