The church is quite nice, but most people come to see the Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones). But above the chapel is a wonderful little religious art museum. It's quire modern in contrast to the rest of the visit. The Capela is out side the main church and requires a separate visit.

The church, built during late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, is very nice to visit, but also allow yourself some time to visit the bones chapel (of course), the interesting museum (with plenty of information) and the lovely exhibition of nativity scenes from around the world made in all materials!

The price of admission is 3 euro for seniors or 4 for younger adults.'The church is beautiful. Unfortunately you may only view it from behind glass walls. The cript with the bones of 5000 monks is worth the price of admission. The church is beautiful white marble which makes for fantastic looking staircases. The museum with navity scences from around... More

One of the biggest churches in Évora, this one of the buildings you must visit in a day in the city. The normal visit is with the Capela dos Ossos and the convent beside, but the church is interesting by its own.

What an amazing church and the wealth displayed there is truly amazing. After visiting this church you should take the time to visit the museum of bones right near it.

It started raining and we headed inside the church for sanctuary from the rain and because we like to visit churches. We had no intention of visiting the bone church as we have seen one before and one is enough. We probably would not have come in here if the weather had been dry. It was free too. I am... More

The Church houses also the bone chapel but is well worth a visit in its own right. Beautifully restored.

This church lies near the old city center. It houses the ominous and well known CHAPEL OF BONES OR CAPELA DOS OSSOS.
