During the first half of 2024, the Museum of Lisbon - Santo António will continue to mark the 850th anniversary of the arrival of the relics of St Vincent in Lisbon, bringing together the two patron saints of the city – St Vincent, patron saint of the Diocese of Lisbon, and St Anthony, the main patron saint of the city of Lisbon.

Until 12 May, a sculpture of Saint Anthony, belonging to the Lisbon Cathedral, and a sculpture of Saint Vincent, from the collection of the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga [National Museum of Ancient Art], will be on display at the museum, reflecting the different forms of devotion the city pays to its saints.
