The dome of Estrela Basilica stands out as one of the greatest Lisbon’s landmarks. The basilica was built in the 18th century, after the promise made by Queen D. Maria I, in case she had a successor. This temple represents one of the most important Late Baroque oeuvres, integrating in an original and harmonious way Baroque volume concept and a modern taste revealed by a neoclassical décor. João Frederico Ludovice worked here, after the monumental Mafra Convent. Apart from its monumental dome, your attention should be focused on the birth of Christ scene in terracotta, sculpted by Machado de Castro, and the grave of D. Maria in Empire style. On the other side of the street, you will find romantic Estrela garden.
