The exterior of the church is plain, located on an ordinary street but the interior is very very dressed up. Pictures don't do it justice - it is extremely ornate and elaborate, worth a visit to see but feels very "dressy". In contrast, and I...More

Well worth the visit with a nice succinct museum attached. Lots of gold and well preserved and relics of saints as well.

The plain exterior is deceiving- Inside is one of the most ornate Lisbon churches. Beautiful Altar, chapels, and wooden ceiling. Amazing example of Portuguese Baroque Recommended

This is a sensational over-the-top Baroque church in downtown Lisbon. Start by looking at the ceiling which has an amazing trompe l'oeil effect making it look three dimensional. Then walk down the side aisles, one by one, and be amazed by the richness of the...More

We were going to the Gloria Elevator (tram) and this church is nearby. So we went in as we enjoy seeing the various churchs in Europe. Elaborate design

Rich in decoration including some of the chapels, not to be missed is the series of oil paintings on the life of Francis Xavier in the sacristy in the rear. There's also a museum adjacent.

The facade of this church may look uninteresting, but the interior is truly amazing. Every thing is made of gold from Brazil. The tiles are also very colourful. Spend some time to appreciate its beauty in detail.

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.
