“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was the first (of many) churches I visited in Lisbon and I loved it. It's tiny but full of interesting things to see. Every archway has a separate scene to view... so much gold and detail to photograph. Best of all, it's free!

“Very nice church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Very nice church to visit, get's you away from the crow a little bit and into the shade. Don't walk past it, you may forget you need to go there

“tons of gold are there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Located in Bairro Alto. Get the small train up, ( very difficult to climb on foot ). 3 minutes walk from the train stop. it is unbelievable to have all this amount of gold in one church. Do visit the attached museum, it is so informative.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We were about to miss it, but thankfully did not. the grandeur is something to see. Worth a visit when you are in the area. Loved it and got some great pictures.

“A jewel of interior ornated churches.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Do not get it wrong and get inside when passing by this church. Nothing on the exterior austere architecture and fassade tells about its sumptuous and rich inside ornamentation and stoneworks.
