Johnny,
do you know which cities have the most quantity of historical churches? And around how many do they have?
Thanks!

I would say that Lisbon, Porto, Braga, Coimbra, Santarém and Évora are most certainly the cities with the larger amounts of historic churches since historically they were, some still are, the most important Portuguese cities. But I can check the precise numbers.
