Panteao Nacional - Igreja de Santa Engraçia -
Une église typique du règne de Joao V, précieux exemple du baroque portugais. Elle abrite le Panthéon, qui réunit les tombes des anciens présidents et personnalités portugaises (dont Amalia Rodrigues, l'égérie du fado) et six cénotaphes à la mémoire de personnages historiques.
Igreja de Sao Vicente -
Mosteiro de Sao Vicente de Fora - Un monastère conçu entre 1582 et 1627 par Filipo Terzi, en l'honneur de Saint Vincent, patron de la ville. Une sobre façade de calcaire blanc, des dimensions grandioses, un style un peu austère, typique de l'architecture portugaise du XVIe s. Mais surtout les murs du cloître du couvent sont recouverts d'azulejos du XVIIIe s, dont des illustrations des fables de La Fontaine. 
Inside, the entrance is decorated with blue-white 18th century tiles that tell the history of the Monastery, including scenes of the Siege of Lisbon in 1147. The ceiling of the room has an illusionistic painting executed in 1710 by the Italian Vincenzo Baccarelli.
The sacristy of the Monastery is exuberantly decorated with polychromed marble and painting.
Contemporary art in the Cloister -
Braganza Pantheon - In 1834, after the religious orders were dissolved in Portugal, the monastery was transformed into a palace for the archbishops of Lisbon. Some decades later, King Ferdinand II transformed the monks' old refectory into a pantheon for the kings of the House of Braganza. Their tombs were transferred from the main chapel to this room.
The cloisters are also notable for the 18th century tiles that recount fables of La Fontaine, among other themes. La Fontaine's fables are told in a series of 38 tile panels around the serene cloisters.
