  • We stopped in briefly and enjoyed it; I wouldn't call it a must-see, certainly not by the standards of the country's European neighborhood.

  • This is one of the very few churches in Lisbon that will not disappoint, and as a matter of fact, even exceed expectations. 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 with gold leaf and decorations of all kinds. Don't miss this one
  • Ablosutly gorgeous Church. Impressive decoration, mostly in the baroque style. A must visit for those who appreciate religious Tourist sites.
