The beautiful Basilica da Estrela was constructed as a religious obligation by Queen Mary I after she gave birth to a healthy heir to the Portuguese throne. Sadly, Jose died two years before the final completion of the Basilica. Mary grieved till her death and was buried in the edifice dedicated to her son. La basilique d'Estrela a été construite par la reine Marie I après avoir donner naissance à l'héritier du trône portugais. Malheureusement, Jose meurt deux ans avant la fin de la construction de l'édifice. Marie passera le restant de ces jours en deuil et sera enterrée dans la basilique. #history #histoire #wikipedia #estrelabasilica #basilica #lisbon #lisboa #lisbonne #portugal #basilique
