The Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Mary Major, also known as Lisbon Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic Cathedral that can be seen on a tour in Lisbon, Portugal.  The structure has been altered numerous times and has lasted through earthquakes.  A combination of various architectural styles, it is a Latin cross building that has three aisles, transept and a key chapel engulfed by an ambulatory.  

Booking a private guide in Lisbon is a great way to learn about this landmark. The church is joined with a cloister and the main facade of the cathedral has two towers adjoining the entrance.  The Gothic-style cloister of Lisbon Cathedral is comprised of a spherical aisle and a sequence of radiating chapels. The second floor of the ambulatory has a succession of windows that provide the inside with plenty of light.  Each circular ornamental fixture over the twin arches has a different tracery pattern.  

On your excursion in Lisbon you can visit this spectacular cathedral with your guide in Lisbon. At the start of the 20th century a lot of the neoclassical features inside as well as outside the cathedral were taken away in order to give this remarkable cathedral an added "medieval" overall look.
