Really Spectacular interior. Small church but so much better than any other we have seen recently. Side Chapels are wonderful as is the ceiling.

This church is mentioned in most travel guides as the most beautiful church of Lisbon... It is indeed very beautiful if you love gold. I have never seen so much gold on 1 church... The royal family invested a lot of money in this church. A big part of this church is made in Rome & brought to Lisboa. You... More

This church will make you say WOW as soon as you walk into it, it is really stunning and so impressive.The museum also houses some interesting pieces, well worth a visit while in Lisbon. Very reasonable entrance fee to the museum of €2.50.

It was my first time to "Igreja de São Roque" at the heart of Bairro Alto in Lisbon. The very first and unforgettable visit! It was built in the 16th century and belonged, at that time, to the Society of Jesus and the jesuit priests. In 1755, the "Igreja de São Roque" was one of the few buildings to survive... More

One of the richest church ever seen, the exterior is quite sober but the interior is all gold. Very ornate, one of a kind. Not to be missed.

The Igreja San Roque is wonderful and the museum amazing - both are well worth a visit or several! The church is majestic but still prayerful and is a tribute to the skill and vision of the craftsmen who built it. The Museum, which is alongside the church, is full of interesting treasures from, in the words of Pope Francis,... More

St Roch church is a must-see in Lisbon, there are many different kind of coloured marbres and glimmering golden statues that makes it very impressive. Along there is the museum of Santa Casa da Misericordia with religious art which is also very interesting to be visited.

This church is very plain from the outside, but, go inside and your are overwhelmed with beauty. The art, the altars, the little museum are a memorable event. The church itself is free, the little museum is also free if you are over 65. Beyond the beauty of the church interior, it is a prayerful place with active local parishoners.... More

Beautiful church, and free to enter and admire. Admission is charged for the adjoining museum, however. It was not crowded on a weekday morning.
