Monastery of São Vicente de Fora

It is one of the examples of Mannerist architecture in Portugal and was built during the dynastic union between Portugal and Spain, under the command of Filipe I. In this place existed, since 1147, a monastery of the same name, built by D. Afonso Henriques, in thanks for the conquest of Lisbon to the Moors. Today it is the seat of the Patriarchate of Lisbon. It holds a vast collection of tiles from around the world, especially the Fables of La Fontaine.
