On the descent to the crypt, there is a panel of modern tiles that celebrates the visit of Pope John Paul II in 1982.

The whole work was partially paid for by the children, who asked for "a little pennant for St. Anthony," and, as you can see today, the floor of the chapel is covered in coins and the walls display messages of devotees. In 1995, the church was renovated to the eighth centenary of the saint.

He belonged to the Society of Jesus, being his first church in Portugal, and one of the first Jesuit churches in the world. It was the Company's main church in Portugal for over 200 years, before the Jesuits were expelled from the country in the 18th century. The church of São Roque was one of the rare buildings in Lisbon to survive the relatively unscathed 1755 earthquake. Both the church and the auxiliary residence were ceded to the Holy House of Mercy of Lisbon, to replace its buildings and church destroyed in the earthquake. It continues to be part of Santa Casa nowadays.

When it was built in the 16th century, it was the first Jesuit church to be designed in the "church-auditorium" style, specifically for preaching. It has several chapels, mainly in the baroque style of the early seventeenth century, the most notable being that of Saint John the Baptist, from the 18th century, the initial project of Nicola Salvi and Luigi Vanvitelli, later altered with the intervention of the master architect João Frederico Ludovice, as can be seen from the correspondence between Ludovice and Vanvitelli, published by Sousa Viterbo and R. Vicente de Almeida in 1900. Ludovice sent a series of drawings to Italy with the changes imposed, since Vanvitelli had refused to change the initial draft. It was commissioned in Italy by D. João V in 1742. It arrived in Lisbon in 1747 and was only settled in 1749. It is a masterpiece of Italian art, unique in the world, consisting of mosaic paintings executed by Mattia Moretti, Masucci, representing the Baptism of Christ, Pentecost and the Annunciation.
