A little more walking through beautiful Lisbon, Portugal! For today, an unedited video that was recorded on the roof of the Estrela Basilica.

The Estrela Basilica is a beautiful baroque church with a richly decorated facade and an even more beautifully painted interior. It is located on a hill in the northern part of the city. Visiting the roof of the basilica involves a long climb up the narrow spiral stairs. Even the climb itself is worth the effort, unless you are claustrophobic. The view of the city from the roof is even more beautiful because the view extends to the Tagus River.

However, the most beautiful thing is that in this way you can enter the dome of the basilica itself and enjoy an unusual view of this beautiful church.

This visit is not for those who do not have the strength to climb stairs, it is not for those who are claustrophobic and definitely not for those who are afraid of heights.
