The 16th century Jesuit church located at the upper town is our favorite in the city. The church is one of the rare buildings in Lisbon that survived the 1755 earthquake. Its facade is simple and modest, but the interior of the church is very interesting with many fascinating paintings, tiles and gilded carving. There are nine chapels in the... More

This Jesuit church is very plain on the outside, but walk inside to find chapels decked out in precious metals, stones, and intricate mosaic floors and artwork.

Stunning interiors with lots of gold inlay and beautiful side chapels. Free entry - check the website for opening times. It would have been nice to get some more information - at the end of our visit we found a leaflet in English so try and look for this first to understand more about the history of the church.

As soon as you enter this place you notice about the importance of this place. It is full of interesting things, but perhaps too much wealth

Very beautifull and decorated baroque church. With paintings and gol imprints all around is impressive. This church was built under D João V during the brasilian gold era.

Lovely church inside, lots of gold to be found in many of the side altars. You could easily pass it not realising its beauty and magnificance,. Worth finding.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
