As we walked up the hill toward the Gloiai Elevator, we came across this church. Nice interior. Beggar on the steps outside the church, but not agressive.

A pretty big church, with an immaculate white façade(a common thing on Lisbon's churches) placed across the street from Camoes square. Not the most beautiful church in Lisbon but worth a short visit if if you get around.

Not a religious person but I like architecture. For me it was a really nice building. There was a service going on so didn't hang about inside.

You can easily recognize this church thanks to the odd staircase in front of it. The church's interior is lovely with some beautiful painting and sculptures. We could not take photos inside, though, as there was a service going on during our visit.

As many churches in the portuguese capital city, this is a nicely decorated and very well kept buiding in one of the hearts of the city. Bright, nice altar and worth visiting.
