Lisbon’s Cathedral was constructed by D. Afonso Henriques, three years after the conquest of Lisbon. This cathedral was built over the old muslim mosque.
In its interior the cathedral has three naves, with six spans and presents a dark austere style.
The most valious piece present in the cathedral is an ark which contains the remains of Saint Vicent, which were transported from Saint Vicent’s Cape to Lisbon.
According to the legend, two crows escorted the boat in which the Saint Vicent’s remain came in. This is also the reason why crows and the boat have become one of Lisbon’s symbols.
In the interior of the Cathedral you might also observe remains of old roman ruins.
