This rather unassuming building from the outside proves to be a gold encrusted jewel box on the inside. One of the oldest jesuit buildings, the wood main vault is wonderfully painted and the side chapels dedicated to saints are heavily decorated with marble and gold...More

I personally found this church too extravagant and really not to my taste. It contains many highly ornate golden chapels around the edge, which I felt were over the top. However it’s free to get into, and I won’t deny that the chapels are works...More

This is a structure that was a big square box that did not feel like a church, though ornately done on the inside. Also had the pew in the middle that were surrounded by gates.

It's free entrance and of course you may donate if you want. You need to pay when you want to visite the side museum. It's a must to see in Lisbon this beautiful church and since it's free too.

Judging by the facade, simple and with nothing out of the ordinary, this is just a banal church. But once you get in, you will be overwhelmed by the beauty of the decorations. For me, it was one of the most beautiful interior of a...More

This is a big gold bomb. If you like that. Very over the top. When people complain about the "Church" as an institution, I may have to agree with them, but then, when I come to churches like this, I always give thanks for the...More

Igreja de Sao Roque is definitely worth the walk up into Bairro Alto. The ceiling is covered with a massive painting and there are four chapels on each side all of which are ornately decorated. This is the most stunning church we've visited yet in...More

Visited here almost 3 weeks ago. Worth coming to see this beautiful church. The outside was unassuming (I just walked straight past it) but inside (literally) lies the "treasures". Take a moment to soak it all in - the artwork, the architecture, all the gold......More
