Basílica da Estrela

Also known as Bas¡lica do Sagrado Coração de Jesus (Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus), this is one of Lisbonïs most important 18th century monuments.

The Baroque style predominates throughout the building, although the central part of the façade is Neo-classical in inspiration. The most important features are the Baroque statues and the harmonious interior, where marble is used extensively.

The interior also features a notable 18th century Nativity scene, carved in cork and terracotta by Machado de Castro.
