Which is the patron saint of Lisbon: St Anthony or St Vincent? This is a question that often comes up when talking about Lisbon. It may seem confusing, but the right answer depends on whether you mean the city of Lisbon or the Diocese of Lisbon. 

During this dialogue with Patriarch Emeritus of Lisbon D. Manuel Clemente, we'll explore the history behind these saints and their relationship with Lisbon.

In addition to the historical perspective, we'll look at the contemporary view to understand the devotion they both inspire, as well as the cultural and visual impact of the festivities associated with each of them.
