Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Vitória Lisbon

The Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Vitória (Church of Our Lady of Victory) is located in the Baixa area of Lisbon.

Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Vitória Lisbon, Portugal.


A chapel of the name Nossa Senhora da Vitória was founded in 1556 and like many churches in Lisbon was destroyed by the earthquake of 1755.

Reconstruction began in 1765 and was completed only in 1824. The church is designed on a longitudinal plan with a single nave and the entrance reached by a small flight of stairs facing south.

The beautiful organ dates from 1793. The main wooden image of Our Lady of Victory is attributed to Machado de Castro.
