Many treasures within this church's plain fascade. Hugely ornate interior with made interesting details. Known as one of the few buildings to have survived Lisbon's Earthquake.

Wasn't blown away with Lisbon, but this was a pleasant visit with beautiful painted wooden ceiling. Pretty quiet. Free and open all day.

If you were to visit only one Church in Lisbon this should be it. Make sure to visit the museum attached to it.
