Got to hear a Gregorian Chant inside the church while the inside of the church was very similar to others who liked to display their gold, while the beggars sat or lay around outside.

The facade is horribly austere (even more than the one in Rio) but the inside is wonderful and beautiful in an area which is safe but has lots of homeless.

Truly a beautiful church both inside and from the outside. It’s definitely worth a visit. Since it’s in the center it’s important to be careful and look around yourself before taking out your camera/phone.

crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
