“Very Interesting Place!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We went here for an hour or so on a rainy Wednesday morning and found it extremely interesting. So many relics to view, a massive catacomb and gloriously restored and well kept church.

There was lots of information to read and the place was very keenly setup for visitors.

We really enjoyed it.

“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Loved this SO much (and I have seen a LOT of churches in Portugal after living here for several months). The catacombs are beautifully kept and the church is filled with the most beautiful gilded wood carvings. You have to see this... it's my favorite church in the country!

“Golden Temple”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Golden shiny church. Amazed by how much gold were used in this little church. You shall not judge it just by its outside.

“Fabulous Churh”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The wood work all through the church is amazing. There is also a little museum and catacombs to visit. Whether you visit church's or not this one is a must to see the craftwork in the wood.
