Now we are on the hill, this is Igreja da Graça, church of a monastery of the Order of Saint Augustine.
Two things were interesting here. The first is the ceiling (it would be interesting to see the original colors), and the second is the peculiar kind of altar, a little bit in the shape of a mountain.
This type of altar is very common in Lisbon and I can’t remember having seen anything comparable anywhere else in Europe. Thus, while the church could be in every country under Catholic reign during the age of Baroque, the altar marks it as distinctly portuguese.
The view outside goes west and it was definitely worth the detour. The official name of the place is Miradouro Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, named after a famous (an to me completely unknown) Portuguese author.
