Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends

Picture taken from Bairro Alto

You can see in the WS another view of this Cathedral

Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa or Sé de Lisboa is the cathedral of Lisbon and the oldest church in the city. Since the beginning of the construction of the cathedral, in the year 1147, the building has been modified several times and survived many earthquakes. It is nowadays a mix of different architectural styles.

During the Moorish period, the site of the present cathedral hosted a mosque. When the city was captured early in the 12th century by Christian crusaders (led by Portugal's first king, Afonso Henríques), the structure was rebuilt and the Sé became the first church in Lisbon. The earthquakes of 1344 and 1755 damaged the structure
