The ornate white dome of the Basílica da Estrela is one of Lisbon's best-loved landmarks. Construction took ten years (1779-89), with statues sculpted by artists from the Mafra School. The church is richly decorated inside with Portuguese marble, although many of the paintings are by Italian masters. Climb the 114 steps for fine views of the city.
