Lisbon. Igreja de São Domingos. It’s a miracle that this baroque church still stands, having barely survived the 1755 earthquake, then fire in 1959. Dating to 1241, its sea of tea lights illuminates gashed pillars, battered walls and ethereal sculptures in its musty, yet enchanting, interior. A Star of David memorial outside marks the spot of a bloody anti-Semitic massacre in 1506.

Lisbon. Igreja de São Domingos, classified as a National Monument, was dedicated in 1241 and was, at one time, the largest church in Lisbon. The church was damaged by the 1531 Lisbon earthquake and almost completely destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. In 1959 the church was devastated once more when a fire broke out in the building. The fire completely gutted the church, destroying many important paintings and statues. In 1994 the church reopened with many signs of the fire in place.
