“Amazing Igreja de Sao Roque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

even though the facade of the Church is not impressive at all, it is very impressive from inside, with its luxurious gilded chapels. Definitely worth a visit.

“Gorgeous Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

One of my favorite churches in the city! I actually enjoyed more than the Sao Francisco. Check out the ceilings when in the church.

“Stunning church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

From choice I prefer this to Lisbon cathedral. The church is so ornate inside with stunning chapels and one of the most expensive chapels ever made. Just be in awe of all the gold in this church. Just up the stairs from Rossio station this church is easy to find and well worth a visit.

“Nice church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Pretty church, but not well marked as to location and little information available at the site. Not worth going out of your way for. We did it in conjuction with taking the St. Juste elevator and the Gloria funicular, which were quite cool, especially Juste.

“Quite a climb in the heat!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Don't bother paying for the exhibition unless you have a special interest in the church. The english translations can be quite hard to follow.
