Largo da Sé,

Lisbon Cathedral is more commonly known as the Sé. This is the oldest church in the city of Lisbon and it was built during the reconquest of the city in 1147 on the ruins of an ancient mosque.

Looking at the church from the outside you can see its beautiful rose windows and two Roman towers. The Gothic style interior is impressive with its nine chapels and cloister which dates back to the 13th century.

The remains of Saint Vincent are laid in the cathedral, brought from the south of Portugal to the cathedral in 1173. The cathedral is the symbol of the city and is classed as the National Monument of Portugal.
