Bus Stop
“Probably one of, if not my favourite neighbourhood of central Lisbon. Slightly removed from the main drag but still in the middle of it all. Great restaurant and array of shops surrounding the main garden square and just of it. Go and explore and immerse yourself in the area around it. Just naming a few places such as: Embaixada, Casa Pau-Brasil, Cevicheria, Pavilhão Chines, Tapisco, Memmo, 2 quiosques on the square, etc etc, etc!”

“The church collapsed during a major earthquake. The church was constructed so well that only the ceiling in the central hall collapsed, everything else was in place. They tried to restore it, but then the funding was redirected to other churches (there was a lot of damage). Nowadays the church is turned into a small museum of antiquity: from the finds of the Stone Age, through the Roman Empire to the Middle Ages. As far as we can see, they periodically organize concerts in the central hall ”
