Explore São Vicente de For a
The Church or Monastery of São Vicente de Fora lies in south-east Lisbon, to the east of the castle and on the eastern edge of the Bairro Alto. One of the most important buildings of its type in the country and built in the Italianate "Mannerist" style, it's one of Lisbon's major attractions. "De Fora" means outside the walls, so Sao Vincente is technically outside of the ancient city boundaries. With the hustle and bustle of central Lisbon a walk away and with access to public transport, it's a great place to stay. Choosing accommodation in the São Vicente de Fora area opens up Lisbon to you.
Experience São Vicente de Fora like a local
Don't do as many tourists do and turn up at midday expecting to get in to the church, it's open most days but is closed between 12 and 3pm. Even if you're not an expert on architecture, you're sure to appreciate the awe this grand building inspires - it's a mausoleum to the Braganza royal family, with a history dating back to the 1st King of Portugal. Staying in São Vicente de Fora you have most of Lisbon's major landmarks within easy access. It's only ten minutes to walk from here to the Castle of Sao Jorge and enjoy the epic views. All the scenic, winding streets of Bairro Alto lead to here, meaning there's no shortage of places to grab a snack, a drink, or browse through the tourist shops. If you want to head further afield, just south of São Vicente is the Avenue Infante Dom Henrique and the stations, for rail, road and Metro connections that take you across Lisbon. Or stay local in the Jardim Boto Machado park and have a picnic.
