The Igreja Real de Sao Francisco is very beautiful inside and has several chapels inside. The outside architecture is as well something special.

This is not the most beautiful church in Portugal but it is quite pretty and is worth a visit if you're at the Bones Chapel. It is an active church - we walked in inadvertently during a mass for nuns, so do watch the timing!
