When visiting Lisbon, Portugal it would be impossible not to notice the numerous churches in the Old Town. It seems like every time we turn a corner, we see yet another church. If the church doors happen to be open, we are certainly going to step inside to take a look around. Steeped in history and ornate in style, Lisbon churches are fascinating – and they are all free to pop inside for a quick visit.
