Had a nice a sunny day. Pillory in front of the church with imagination can fill in the history. Church is free to enter.

we were hesitating about visiting the treasure but it is well worth it. Do not miss the sacristy and the cloister.

I visited the church on a walk about town. Well preserved and free to visit. Worth a pop in when in Viseu and it also leads you to the oldest part of the city which I always find interesting

Do not miss this one when visiting Viseu; check the relics of the first Portuguese saint. Also some details of the constructon are magnificent.

A lovely cathedral located high in Viseu and with a large open piazza. Beautiful artwork on the walls and depending on the time of day, there's some great lighting within the cathedral corridors. Worth visiting.

This remarkable building justly deserves a visit. It´s rather austere and massive, having a baroque interior with golden altars, ornated vaults, etcetera. In the adjacent cloister, there are also beautiful elements and tiles. One good thing about this cathedral is to be surrounded by others...More
