Sé de Lisboa – Lisbon’s Cathedral

2

In one of the many hills of Lisbon stands the city’s Cathedral – Sé de Lisboa. Being the oldest church in Lisbon, it has survived the ages and more than one earthquake and is still there for you to visit!

Sé de Lisboa is Lisbon’s Cathedral and its construction began in the 12th century when the city was reconquered during the crusades by Portugal’s first king. Originally named Church Santa Maria Maior, it is the oldest church in the city.

Try picking a sunny day to visit old beauty – that shouldn’t be difficult at all in Lisbon. You can walk through downtown (Baixa) and then make your way up the hill. Walk on Rua da Conceição and then climb Rua de Santo António and soon you’ll see the cathedral in Largo da Sé. Otherwise you can hop on traditional tram 28 and enjoy the ride.

The cathedral is usually open from 9AM to 7PM and if you are into architecture, you can observe the mixture of styles that results from the church having been being built and rebuilt along the centuries. Also, classical musical concerts are held in the church every now and then, open to the public.
Nearby you can also visit the city’s castle, famous Bairro Alto and several sightseeing spots.

    LomoLocations: 'The Lord the Rings' Territory in New Zealand

    Hiking in New Zealand has its own proper noun. Great Walks, they call it. The term stands for nine routes that can send people panting and oohing over nature. In 2001, another upper-case name sealed the country’s reputation for pristine land. "The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring" became an accidental advertisement for the green wonders of New Zealand.

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.
