When approaching the ordinary facade of this historic church do not let it deter you. If you see only one Lisbon church interior this should be the one. Incredibly stunning. Built late 16th century as the first Portuguese Jesuit church. The interior is very opulent....More

We were told that this church was the richest church in Portugal - Not hard to believe - amazing statuaries.

This cathedral from outside looks like any other Cathedral, however the splendour lies inside. There is a succession of splendidly decorated chappels inside the Cathedral. The highlight is Capela de Sao Joao Baptista which is the most expensive Chappel ever constructed at £250,000 in 1742....More

A small but still incredible church to visit for 20 minutes or so. The various alters are all beautiful and over the top ostentatious with gold glistening on just about every one of them. Churches sure do love their gold and guady alters. However, there...More

I can't really add to what people have already said, it is truly breathtaking inside. A bit out of the way, but do make the effort to see it.

Got quite late the first day from Sintra to Lisbon (via Belem). Had planned a leisurely trip to Bairro Alto. Still made it in fading daylight and oncoming rain. Unfortunately, the Sao Roque was closed by the time we got to it after Gloria and...More

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
