It’s a miracle that this church still stands, having barely survived the 1755 earthquake, then fire in 1959. A sea of tea lights illuminates gashed pillars, battered walls and ethereal sculptures in its musty, yet enchanting, interior. Note the Star of David outside marking the spot of a bloody anti-Semitic massacre in 1506.

The square is a popular hang-out with Lisbon’s African community. At dusk locals gather for sundown cherry liqueurs at A Ginjinha .
