“Plain on the Outside, Beautiful on the Inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

My travel buddy really wanted to visit this church, so we stopped on our way today. It looks like such a plain church from the outside, but I really did appreciate the detail inside. The ceiling was my favorite part. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, just stop in for a five or ten minute visit. It's worth it!

“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.
