Statues with real hair - weird! The rich gold panelling really sets these Portuguese churches apart - in this one there are a couple of notable works of art, and the ceiling has two odd trompe l'oeil 'domes' that don't resolve themselves at the same point!

This church is beautiful and has a lot of gold! When coming in, look to your right, they have printed guides in many languages, including French and English, that explain all the chapels and the main one. There is staff to explain things if needed. You need about 30 minutes to visit, unless you are really into churches. Free!

Outside just looks like an ordinary church, but inside - wow. Enter from the museum to the right of the church. Admission 2.50 euro. You get to see lots of paintings, artifacts and the like, many of which are gold or silver and have beautiful workmanship. Then you enter the church itself and everywhere is elaborately decorated. There were lots... More

Very ornate and impressive. Definitely for those into bling even if you do not usually visit churches.

Possibly the most highly decorated church we have ever seen. Worth tracking it down to see the really florid gold plated side chapels.

Tons of gold and gems (and security guys everywhere). Do not miss the museum where they show some precious artifacts that could not fit a little church. They have very nice looking patio and cafe inside the museum. We were not luck to eat there for technical reasons, but it looked promising. To get to the church you can use... More

A favorite church in Lisbon. Unassuming and simple exterior. Yet the interior will impress most. Not a larger church but it has such a beautiful decor. An overwhelming layer detail. Quite stunning and worth a quick visit.

The simple exterior of this church doesn't prepare you for what's inside. Magnificent and well worth a visit!

We were following Rick Steve's walk of Lisbon and entered the church per his instructions. I'm glad we did, otherwise we would have easily ignored it and walked by. The exterior almost reminds me of a church in New England, fairly simply. However, one walks in and SHIZAM! The church was one of the few buildings that survived the earthquake... More
