The outside of the church is unassuming but once inside the church is stunning with guided gold alters and a beautiful painted ceiling. Amazing craftsmanship can be seen throughout the church. A definite see in Lisbon. The church is located downtown so it's easily accessible.

Worth a visit - it has a beautiful interior. Unfortunately, we only had a brief visit, as they were about to start a mass.

This church had a strange architecture: it feels strange and very 'wide' when you get inside. There is only one navis. The church is very richly decorated and is one of the top churches in Lisbon. Take a look at the beautiful wooden ceiling too!

The interior is just as great as you can read from many other reviews, from the outside you would probably not expected this though.

This is one of the most visually churches I have ever had the pleasure to visit. The amonut of gold in this church beggars belief and the chapels are simply stunning. For me the most beautiful church in Lisbon.

We found this church a short walk from our hotel. It looked rather drab outside but has an absolutely stunning interior you must not miss. Ornate twisted marble pillars flank the beautiful altar. Quite the best gold cross with jesus I have seen. Interesting murals...More

This church's interior is one of the most ornate I have seen in Europe - it belies the exterior. Many alcoves display bright, beautiful colors in primarily gold. Truly, a magnificent display of iconic catholic religious history and ritual.

The interior of this church is simply amazing, and that alone makes it worth a visit. There are also apparently guided tours in at least Portuguese and English, although I just missed the English tour, so I cannot comment on that.

The outside of this building follows the usual expectations of Lisbon architecture, but the inside of the Igreja de Sao Roque is mind blowing. The attention to detail is pain staking, you have to see it to believe it.

Close to the Barrio Alto, the Igrega de Sao Roque is best known for the lavish baroque chapel of Sao Joao Baptista (St. John the Baptist) as well as a small museum of sacred art. Definitely well worth visiting!

plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the

The church is not opened on December 25th but there are masses from Tuesday to Sunday at 12:30 PM. To confirm the hours of the Christmas Mass I would suggest you to contact them: igreja@scml.pt

Hello, First of all: São Roque Church and Torre de Belém are in opposite sides of the City. While the first is in the center of old Lisboa, the second is out doors of Lisboa, although not very far. If you REALLY WANT to... More
