The Estrela Basilica (Portuguese: Basílica da Estrela), or Royal Basilica and Convent of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, is a basilica and ancient carmelite convent in Lisbon, Portugal, built by order of Queen Maria I of Portugal, as a fulfilled promise for giving birth to a son (José, Prince of Brazil). The official name of the church is the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Construction started in 1779 and the basilica was finished in 1790, after the death of José caused by smallpox in 1788.

The Estrela Basilica was the first church in the world dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


Sehr schönes Motiv, brilliante Farben, schöne Aussicht.
Leider entwerten die gekappten Dächer/Türme das ansonsten wunderbare Panorama.
