Didn't get to see the church as mass was taking place. However, the museum at €2.50 has to be one of the best bargains ever! Beautifully laid out this small museum houses a treasure trove of religious paintings, reliqeuries and statues. Don't walk by, call in, this is a quite stunning collection.

Very ornate and beautiful church on the inside. No entrance fee. Definitely worth the visit to look around and learn a little bit about the history.

We went into the museum to escape the mid-day heat when the Port Wine iInstitute did not open at 11 as our tour book said it would. The museum had a surprisingly excellent collection of artifacts and the church was magnificent...the altar, the tile work, the statuary. The books so not highlight it but well worth a visit.

Wonderful example of old Jesuit churches, the unassuming exterior hides an exquisitely decorated church with a reliquary to rival the most famous of Europe's cathedrals

If you have some time to kill and are in Chaido, this church is worth a stop. It has an amazing painted ceiling and is very ornate.

Beautiful church, was free to go in and look around. I think it's more beautiful than the main cathedral of the city, and definitely a worth walking to this place to look around.

Having received the benefit of a Jesuit university education, I visited Igreja de Sao Roque, the first Jesuit church in Portugal. Although the Jesuits lost control eventually, it is nonetheless a fantastic illustration of Portuguese religious art and architecture. Our visit to the structure allowed us to visualize life in medieval Portugal, and to appreciate the remaining splendor of the... More

They say that all that glitters is not gold but that is not the case with this church and the museum alongside of it. Not only does it gleam and shine with gold but the mosaic tiles are so small and well done that they look like a picture card. It is out of the way and a bit of... More

A very simple facade, but inside it is breathtaking. The most expensive shapel on the world was designed in Rome, and they brought to Lisbon in 1747. Gold semi-precious stones, silver. The ceiling is a big fresco, work of the king's painter. Besides it is a museum baroque silverware, valuable religious pieces.
