You will be able to discover histories about how the children were found and also an exhibition of the belongings of this... More

The façade of this church is quite austere and not really attractive, so we almost did not go in. This would have been a mistake we realised afterwards, as the inside is really amazing. The decoration of the altarpieces is exquisite and luxurious, showing the wealth of the different religious orders in colonial times. Taking photos is allowed, but without... More

Pay attention to the St. Roque chapel and the depictions of the dogs. When Lisbon was struck... More

We walked through the church on our own, then went to the museum. We returned with a guide. There is so much more appreciation of this church when you have someone to give you history and answer questions. For example, the relics (two huge displays of them and others as well) were discovered by accident when the paintings that were... More

In this church is the chapel to Saint John the Baptist which was built with the gold & diamonds Portugal extracted from Brazil.. The chapel was constructed & made in Rome which had a one time mass then was deconstructed and shipped to this church to be installed.. The Portuguese king at the time spared no expense on this and... More

A bit too overwhelming for my taste but some interesting art works to be found within the building. A good example of its kind.
