Explore with me the unique heartbeat of Lisbon, a city that has intertwined with my journey since childhood.

Sancho II in the 13th century, the church underwent significant transformations due to renovations, earthquakes, and fires. Intricately linked to the Inquisition, it witnessed the execution of heretics in public squares and played a role in one of Lisbon's darkest episodes—the 1506 massacre of Jews.
