Beautiful Estrela Basilica, also known as the Basilica of the Star, has some intriguing facts about its creation. Located in the civil parish of Estrela, in Lisbon, Portugal, it is a magnificent example of late Baroque architecture and is considered one of the most iconic and emblematic buildings in the city.

I discovered this Basilica while deciding to ride tram 28 over its entire route in Lisbon. However, when I saw this beautiful church, I just had to get out and explore it and resume my tram ride later.
