“Beautiful, elaborately decorated church”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

It's so richly decorated! Not my favorite church that I've been to, but certainly worth a visit. Make sure to look at the painted ceiling.

“Looks are deceiving”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

A wonderful lady who lives in Bairro Alto told us to go to this church and we are really glad we took her advice. It is so plain outside you would never give it a second glance but that changes once you venture inside. The wood ceiling with the frescoes are stunning...make sure you stop in and check it out.

“Plain on the Outside, Beautiful on the Inside”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

My travel buddy really wanted to visit this church, so we stopped on our way today. It looks like such a plain church from the outside, but I really did appreciate the detail inside. The ceiling was my favorite part. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, just stop in for a five or ten minute visit. It's worth it!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was the first (of many) churches I visited in Lisbon and I loved it. It's tiny but full of interesting things to see. Every archway has a separate scene to view... so much gold and detail to photograph. Best of all, it's free!

“Very nice church”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Very nice church to visit, get's you away from the crow a little bit and into the shade. Don't walk past it, you may forget you need to go there
