Very attractive church, easy to walk to in Bairro Alto, near Rossio railway station. They operate an adjacent museum, but it closed before we could get in from the church. There are about 100 male Saint reliquaries to the left of the altar, and about 100 female Saint reliquaries to the right of the altar. They're ornate and fascinating. Good... More

You aren't allowed to take pictures, but it is free to go into the church. It's extremely beautiful with gold gilded everything. I'm not sure if it is actually gold, but it is pretty gaudy. The museum is inexpensive at €2.50 with a handful of paintings and a lot of silver gilded items and old relics. Among them are two... More

Well, after Jeronimos perhaps, but certainly the most beautiful building in the center, so not to be missed.

This church is located in Bairro Alto, which is a very nice place to walk and to have a coffee in one of many cafes that are located there. This church offer a nice view of the Portugal rich era, and there are beautiful paintings and nice stained-glass window.

We climbed a mountain of steps to get here and I would say that was worthwhile. Incredibly ornate and opulent, over the top really but have to admire all the work that went into it. It does have the most expensive chapel with very ornate mosaics and semi precious stones. Worth a short look.

This church was one of the highlights of our visit to Lisbon.The decoration of the interior,the chapels and the ceiling is spectacular, and the museum contains superb paintings and a world-famous collection of silver and gold church pieces.

Incredibly rich in details and colors, tiles, sculptures everywhere you look. Beautiful ceiling and a guaranteed "waw" effect.

From the outside we think that is a normal church, but we have to go in, because it is one of the most rich churches in Lisboa. If you are going to Lisboa you have to see it!

Beautiful and rich interiors. The ceiling cannot be missed. And the altars are stunning. For me the most beautiful is the one at left of the main altar. Although it may appear those are not paintings but micro mosaic - a much difficult technique. It is also worth visitng the museum which is next door.

Thank Alice B
