Quite plain on the outside, but the interior is spectacular. Main altar nicely decorated, but side chapels are exquisite. One in particular has many types of marble with insets of precious stones. Worth the visit.

One of the most beautiful churches in town. If you pass by and look at the facade you can't imagine what's inside. Go in!!

Everything has already been said: plain white neoclassical façade and sumptuous baroque inside. We had the privilege to pop in here during the rehearsal of a X-mas choir and it all added to the nice atmosphere

This is one of the very few churches in Lisbon that will not disappoint and even exceed expectation. The plain white neoclassical shell does not betray the sumptuous baroque interior that's as richly decorated as any church that you'll ever see. The place is dripping...More

"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
