This church is yet another unassuming church you would just pass, without realizing what's behind this deceivingly bland facade of white washed walls. It's easily recognizable by its 2 bell towers. We were lucky the church was open for viewing when we walked by. The interior is copiously decorated with gilded wood and large paintings and the style is clearly Baroque. It emits richness and opulence and clearly passes the Wow-test.
It sits right in the center of the Alfama neighborhood. The foundations date back to the 12th century, but what we see today is from around 1700.

The Church presents a Mannerist and Baroque architectonic style, with two bell towers, an interior with one only nave, with sixteen paintings attributed to Bento Coelho.
The church is also profusely decorated with golden carved wood, an important feature of the Baroque period, that provides a prosperous and nobility to the space.
