“over the top church interior”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I am not a great fan of baroque catholic churches so wish I had given this one a miss. reminded me of too many I have seen in Rome and other Italian cities. I preferred the plain architecture of the Se.

“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.
