Santo Estevão Church
Lisbon Card: 24, 48, or 72-Hour Pass
Situated in the traditional Alfama old quarter, in the historical centre of Lisboa, the Santo Estêvão Church is proudly classified as National Monument since 1918.
The present building would have been re-built in between 1733 and 1740 over a previous temple of the 12th century, under the project of the renowned Architect José da Costa Negreiros, with an unusual orientation, on the north-south way.
With the big earthquake of 1755 the Church suffered great damages, opening later on 1773 and afterwards in the 1930’s had some conservation works.
The Church presents a Barroque style with an irregular façade divided in three structures, with two bell towers, which presently only one is erected as the other one got completely destroyed with the big 1755’s earthquake.
The Church’s interior is quite wealthy and prosperous decorated with a set of sculptures attributed to José de Almeida, an important set of glazed tiles and a golden monstrance that keeps a sacred Eucharistic bread.
