    Casa dos Bicos

    Museum
    Open Details
    The Bicusa House, even against the background of Lisbon's unusual buildings, looks unusual. It was built in 1523 by the son of Alfonso Albuquerque (viceroy of Portuguese India). In 1755 it was destroyed by an earthquake and it was only in 1980 that the house was restored to its original appearance by adding two more floors according to the ancient sketches.
    The walls of the house are decorated with dozens of small golden pyramids. This masonry is called rustication. Because of the play of light and shadow on the unusual surface of the walls, it is also sometimes called the Faceted House or the Diamond House.
    Nowadays, the building hosts a variety of exhibitions.

    Igreja de Santo António da Sé

    Church
    Open Details
    Saint Anthony (real name Fernando de Bulhões, port. Fernando de Bulhões) was born in Lisbon in 1195. He became one of the most famous Franciscans and one of the most famous Catholic preachers. His widespread fame led to his canonization just one year after his death in 1232. He is considered the patron saint of Lisbon.
    The house in which the saint was born has not survived; however, local tradition has long believed that this house stood to the west of the cathedral. The first chapel on the site was already built in the 15th century. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, it was rebuilt into a small church; at the same time, the religious brotherhood of St. Anthony was founded in the church.

    Elevador da Glória

    Sights
    Open Details
    Originally, the funicular was powered by a water system. Water was poured into a tank under the floor of the carriage at the top station. In this way, the upper car became heavier than the lower car, from which the water was drained, and, going down, pulled up the lower car. Already in 1886 the system was replaced by steam, and since 1915 the funicular was electrified.
