It's a beautiful church or should I say remains of what was a beautiful church. The roof was destroyed during the earthquake in the 1700s but the rest of the architecture is amazing. The museum inside with the archaeological findings is interesting too. It is right in the middle of all the other main areas so if you have the time, do check this out and you won't be disappointed.
I loved it! The ruins stand magnificent and you can also see beautiful things in the museum. One more thing I loved about it is the square in front of it, where you can have a coffee or an aperitivo while listening to street musicians.. This place was one of my favorites in Lisbon❤️
