Front of Lisbon's Cathedral, Lisbon, Portugal.  The construction of Lisbon's Cathedral started in 1147. During the centuries, and due to several major earthquakes shaking Portugal's capital city, the building got substantially damaged and needed significant renovation. Although thought as a place of worship, the constant battles and threats coming from the south meant that the cathedral was a last line of defense, and thus its fortified architecture. Nowadays, it is still used as the main place of worship in the city, and a must visit site for tourists.
