“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We had seen the building from a number of points in Lisbon and approached it from the Santa Justa elevator. Both the ruined church and the museum are well worth visiting

“Worth the price of admission”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Pretty incredible. Not the greatest thing in lisbon, but If you're in the area, it's definitely worth the 3.50 euro admission. Allow 30 minutes, tops. Watch out for the creepy mummy children in museum section.

“Very impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Worth to pay the ticket and enter, not just take few pictures from outside. The indoor exhibition of some casually collected historical artifacts is rather small but there are some interesting pieces. The remains of the gothic convent which went ruined in the earthquake is impressive and well preserved.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The ruined church is impressive and the small museum attached is well worth the time. There is a good collection from prehistory to Roman artifact and up to the 19th century.

“Beautyful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

When you walk inside you can imagine how was in the beggining.
Is a not finished church and that make it most real and gripping.
And there is a museum inside acceptable too.
