Igreja de Sao Roque Reviews
If you're going to visit a church in Lisbon you should put this one on your list. Nice outside and beautiful inside. Gold, marble and paintings everywhere. Maybe over the top for some people but... more »

An old Church. You can go in, but much better from outside. You can approach it with an elevator or by walk. There are a lot of restaurants in nearby. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy the view. 🍷
One of the most beautiful churches in Lisbon! Definitely worth a visit. There is also a museum attached that is worth checking out as well. For those that celebrate Mass, they do have regular services. The church does close down in the evening so plan your visit accordingly. Worth checking out!
