I lucked out with a semi-private English-speaking guide (only 1 other person.) Gratis, with admission to the museum. The amount of wealth that the Jesuits had in this one church is on display in the museum, as well as the church itself, which can be seen at no charge.

Do not be fooled by the austere facade. It is one of the richest interiors among Lisbon's churches!
The museum was recently renovated to a very friendly and interesting place.
The café and restaurant in the cloister is a must for lunch, cofee or tea.

There's not a surface left untouched but the church is a major WOW! Gold, paintings, all the frou-frou.

Beautiful church well worth a visit. The decoration and tiled walls are really lovely. Not huge but easy to reach and worth a look

Don't miss this one! A marvelous cathedral with stunning icons and gold everywhere. And the best part about most of the cathedrals in Lisbon is that they allow photos (without flash). So crank up the ISO and snap away
