Saw it on a stroll around Lagos. Lagos in general is nice to walk around with plenty to see. Unfortunately it was closed despite the sign indicating it was during opening hours.

At only 2€ it's worth a quick visit to view the chapel with its Portuguese titles and from the top to view the habour and central Lagos. There isn't too much else but worth the visit.
