a nice Gothic style church, with some Manueline elements interior in Renaissance and Baroque styles even so and it would be enough to visit but the Chapel of the Bones is something unique, creepy somehow it's a must to see

Whilst n a 2 week holiday staying in some of Portugal’s Posadas we have visited many churches and cathedrals- some very dark, dusty and depressing. This was a real change: newly refurbished, bright and uplifting. A must visit religious, artistic and historical attraction.

This church has many statues each with outstanding features and hand carved excellence. Long walk up hill on cobblestone streets.

Someone spent millions bringing this church back from obscurity and it's worth it. Museum houses some beautiful historic pieces and shows how the reconstruction was done. Look for the doll-like statue of the BVM sitting in a chair. Charming collection of hundreds of Christmas crèches...More
