A beautiful site to travel to with a private guide in Lisbon, Portugal is the famous Estrela Basilica. This is a basilica as well as a primeval convent in Lisbon.   The massive church has a very large dome and is positioned on a hill and that at one time was the western part of Lisbon. The colossal Estrela Basilica is able to be spotted from a far distance. An excursion in Lisbon can include this landmark.

The design of its architecture is along the same lines as well-known Mafra National Palace.  Situated in the front of the basilica are two twin bell towers and contains statues of saints and in addition to symbolic figures.   A substantial amount of pink, grey, and yellow marble was used when constructing the floor and walls.  Interesting, elaborate, patterns are trademark of this church and among the most stunning in all of European churches.  A number of paintings contribute to provide a balanced design.  

A prominent nativity scene comprised of over 500 figures made out of cork and terra cotta is a major attraction that draws tourists on a regular basis. One of our guides in Lisbon will assist you on your tour in Lisbon.
