Free admission

The great matchmaker and patron saint of lovers, Saint Anthony is often invoked to help in matters of the heart and to bring and renew romantic love.

On 12 and 13 February, the public is invited to take part in various free activities prepared by the Museum of Lisbon - Saint Anthony to give your partner a special day while also showing some love for our match-making saint.

And if you still haven't found your true love, you might think about getting yourself in the saint's good books by tossing a coin at the statue of Saint Anthony in front of the entrance to the Museum of Lisbon - Saint Anthony. It is said that the number of attempts you need to get your coin to land and stay on the saint's book represents the number of years you'll need to wait for your desired love. 

Let's try our luck this Valentine's Day by taking a selfie with our beloved next to the portico of plates with sayings of Saint Anthony or in the more Instagrammable corners of Alfama, discovering more about the traditions that link Saint Anthony to all the world's lovers. 

Because love is... visiting Saint Anthony for Valentine's Day.
