Carlos Fernández, a young multimedia professional working for UNAOC, joins the call to action #forSafeWorship by taking us on a fascinating tour of the oldest church in Lisbon, Portugal, the historic a Sé de Lisboa.
The church has survived multiple earthquakes since its completion in 1147. Restoration efforts have added styles from several historical periods, making Sé de Lisboa one of the world’s most architecturally eclectic.
“Protecting religious sites like this one is not only important for their incalculable historic and artistic value, but also for the services they offer their parishioners,” Carlos affirmed.
Join Carlos in touring a Sé de Lisboa and send us a video about your own personal connection to a place of worship.
