Even though it is less particular compared with other churches of Evora, this church is worth the visit. It is simple inside and beautiful. Take into account limited opening hours, from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

The entire place is really interesting but the roof is open to the public and worth the climb. The catacombs and church are lovely. A guided tour would be helpful.

Built in the early 1500s it is a very rare example of Mannerist architecture in Portugal. You cannot visit inside, but the façade is worth the visit.

Marvellous facade, bit run down and portico full of pigeon guano and what smelled like human P** Pity one can't visit the interior, although much may have been dismantled.

We wandered past this old church and were struck by the strange and different exterior. Rather grotesque men statues on the top. Interesting.

The inside of the church itself may not be accessible, but the outside is still worth a look. And, to the right of the church is a building that is open to the public. Previously used by the military, the public can walk into the...More
