What people say

"Located in the typical Alfama neighborhood, the Church of São Miguel has very ancient origins, probably dating back to the beginnings of Portuguese nationality itself, in the 12th century. However, the current building was built over the original, between 1673 and 1720, under the direction of the very prestigious architect João Nunes Tinoco. The Church has a Mannerist and Baroque architectural style, with two bell towers, a single nave interior, and sixteen paintings, some attributed to the renowned Bento Coelho. Also worth highlighting is the profusion of gilded carvings, characteristic of the Baroque period, giving the space richness and nobility."
"You can't say that you visit Lisbon if you didn't "get lost in Alfama""
