Lisbon Cathedral: Ruins and Lady Tombs

Lisbon’s dramatic cathedral (Sé Cathedral) is well-appreciated form the outside, but let’s appreciate it from the inside too! It has some of my favorite things: Roman ruins in the cloister and lady tombs!!

The cloister was empty.

The Lady tombs even feature book reading, which as I can tell you (as I wrote my dissertation on lady tombs) is really really rare.

She’s reading Fear and Loathing

To see the cloister and the choir with the lady tombs you have to pay a few euro entrance fee, but they are totally totally worth it. The best three euros (I think?) I spent in Lisbon. Except the bifana sandwich!

Read on lady tomb, read on.
