All reviews beautiful church side chapels lapis lazuli plain exterior painted ceiling main altar sacred art amazing interior adjacent museum gold leaf semi precious stones worth a visit bairro alto small museum on display walking tour sao
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.
If you like to look at the grandeur of a church then this is the place for you. With large gold lined enclaves, historic paintings, ornate sculptures and an unbelievably ornate enclave imported from Rome after being blessed by the pope you will be wowed....More
We were recommended to visit this ancient church since it was one of the very few that escaped damage during the earthquake of 1755ad . The church was full of original features,lots of gold gilt and paintings. It felt very old and had a great...More
This is an example of having inflated expectations from reading other people's reviews. While a neat church, it was not spectacular. The museum, on the other hand, was surprisingly good, far better than the majority of church museums I have seen.

We stumbled upon this on one of our walks. I formally studied The Virgin Mary's parents, and have long wanted to find relative artworks. I was delighted to find information on Saint Anne and Joachim here. It started me on a quest to find other...More
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
The plain façade of Sao Roque should not dissuade you from entering this church.; as the ol' adage goes, "don't judge a book by its cover" because inside it is glorious.
Sao Roque Church was built in the 16th century and is radiant with gilded...More
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "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, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
There are guided visits everyday, except mondays. You should book previously to guarantee availability. Call +351 21 324 08 69 or 88 or 65, or e-mail the museum.
Have a great visit and enjoy Lisboa!
