For a 5 eur ticket you get an amazing view. Alos the church is not crowded! Worth visiting it if you are in the area.

The church da Sao Vicente has a great architecture from the outside. The monastery has two yards and is a pure beauty. The view from the terrace is fantastic. Seems to be less crowded than the other places of Lisbon.

You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.
Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a
