Visit Basilica da Estrela and after it do a break in Jardim da Estrela, take a snack and just wonder around or you can even do some jogging. You can also decide to take the Tram 28 for a tour around the old part of Lisbon-in front of the Basilica is the famous Tram 28 Stop.
One of Lisbon's most beautiful and emblematic churches. It's worth going up to the dome to check out the view.
My wife & I arrived just before a service started. While it was going on, we marvelled at the architecture, statues and paintings. Definitely a sight to see in Lisbon.
The Basilica da Estrela is an eye-catching Lisbon landmark and monument. Surrounded by other attractions like the Estrela Gardens, the Sao Bento Palace and the museums of Ancient Art and Marionettes!
