Most impressive in all Lisbon. So very simple on the outside and yet so stunning on the inside. Each spot so very carefully and beautifully designed, was like an exhibition or contest, and yet very imposing. Definitely not to miss while in town

Worth a look if you are walking around Bairro Alto. The church has a very interesting and ornate array of mosaics which adorn the Baroque capela.

With so many Portuguese and Spanish churches they do not look too impressive on the outside but be amazed by the inside, the rich decorations, the gold, the statues, and they are all still working churches as well.

We had walked passed this church a few times and had really noticed it, as from the outside it looks quite plain. As you walk through the door you get the wow factor. Well worth a visit.

Very impressive interior chapels that come as quite a surprise, given the rather plain exterior. Definitely worth seeing.

You can't tell from the outside what you are going to find inside. Beautiful 18th century decorations with amazing gilded carved woods. St John Baptist chapel is a masterpiece by italian artists
