From the outside, Sao Roque looks so simple, like any other church. If one didn't know better, it would be easy to overlook it while walking the cobblestone streets...at least, until you go inside. At least ninety percent of this church is covered in pure, shimmering gold. You walk down the aisle and look at each group of statues (each... More

While the exterior is a plain façade, the interior of the church goes beyond words! Originally constructed in 1515, this church survived the Lisbon earthquake and was originally a shrine which housed a relic from Sao Roque. In the 6th century it became a gathering point for the Jesuits. The Igreja de Sao Roque was the first Jesuit church constructed... More

Very nice church with unexpectedly rich interior, do not miss it and definitely visit it. It is also very close to a good traditional restaurant named Cervejaria Trindad.

Definately worth a visit to this church in the Bairro Alto area of Lisbon, and just around the corner from a great look out- miradouro de Sao Pedro de... More

Even if you are not Catholic you will fell attached to this place. Generally for me Portuguese churches and cathedral are so welcoming, warm and real as there are always local people inside. I like the richness and the beauty. I like peace and solidness.

On our walk into Baixa and Chiado we passed by and took a glance in the church, only to be overwhelmed by its beauty. The church's adjoining museum is definitely a must-see in Lisbon.
