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!

One of the biggest churches in Évora, this one of the buildings you must visit in a day in the city. The normal visit is with the Capela dos Ossos and the convent beside, but the church is interesting by its own.

What an amazing church and the wealth displayed there is truly amazing. After visiting this church you should take the time to visit the museum of bones right near it.
