Lisbon has so many churches, it is hard to decide which ones to see. Sao Roque comes with a rather quiet exterior which lets out nothing of its impressive interior. Restored with much gold and in loving detail, the eight altars are outfitted with amazing glory and therefore all the more impressive. It is a stiff walk up the hill... More

One of the best churches in town (if not THE best). A baroque gem, with beautiful chapels all around. The most beautiful, dedicated to St John the Baptist, has some splendid marbles and was designed by two really famous italian architects to be built in Rome and was then brought by boat and rebuilt inside the church. Also noteworthy the... More

Whilst the museums of Lisbon all disappointed me to some extend due to the fact the collections were all so badly labelled, the same cannot be said for the churches. And they do not charge to educate. This church had a comprehensive handout that guided me around the whole site and I learnt a great deal. Of course, the highlight... More

For more then 30 or more years that I did not enter this Church in the northern limits of Bairro Alto in Lisbon. What was intended to be just a particular visit dictated by the fact that this Church is the one in Lisbon where it has been open an Holy Door in this Year of Mercy, became after a... More

Gorgeous interior of the church. Astoundingly beautiful Baroque jewel. It is a place of prayer but church itself is a museum quality. Museum next door has many interesting treasures as well, but it is the Church (free) I remembered the most.

Having seen many churches in the world, this one is a bit special. Nothing spectacular from the outside, but from the inside you have many niches with detailed figures and lots of little angels. Very different.

This church is a must-see. It is only a short walk from Carmo and the interior is stunning. The gold leaf decor alone is worth the walk which, taken slowly, is only about 15 min from Rossi Square. The museum has some very good art reminding us that this was once built over the plague graves. Indeed, St Roch (Sao... More

This is the most breathtaking church in the most beautiful district of Lisbon. You'll definitely need to spend some time inside to appreciate all paintings.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
