One of the most beautiful churches in town. If you pass by and look at the facade you can't imagine what's inside. Go in!!

Everything has already been said: plain white neoclassical façade and sumptuous baroque inside. We had the privilege to pop in here during the rehearsal of a X-mas choir and it all added to the nice atmosphere

This is one of the very few churches in Lisbon that will not disappoint and even exceed expectation. The plain white neoclassical shell does not betray the sumptuous baroque interior that's as richly decorated as any church that you'll ever see. The place is dripping...More

Do Not let the simple and nondescript exterior fool you! The Igreja de São Roque is a stunning masterpiece of a house of worship. In fact, this church is quite possibly the most beautiful church in Lisbon. This place offers the chapel and well as...More

Definitely worth the visit if you're in the area. From the outside it's a plain white building. Entering it is like discovering a treasure trove. Don't miss the glass mosaics in the Capela de São João Baptista
