‪This is a neat church with a wonderful painted wooden ceiling. Like many Jesuit churches, it’s elaborate ornamentation almost overwhelms your senses. Sometimes they are overly gaudy, particularly in its gilding, but here it is just lovely and the quality of workmanship exquisite. It’s the sort of church you do not want to leave, because no mater how closely you look and how long, you know you haven’t seen it all. The trouble is you want to see it all. Eventually it’s time to move on. Saddened, but just glad you had the opportunity to see it at all and if you are one of the lucky ones, like we were, you get to come back and admire it once again. Don’t worry. It’ll be just as magical the second time around.‬

‪I find it to be the prettiest church in Portugal. Simple stunning master piece of religious art.
Remarkable (and I am not a church lover)‬

‪If you like to visit churches, you should not miss this one.

What makes this church special is its rectangular construction and flat ceiling. That makes it so different from many other churches.‬

‪A rather bland, white exterior gives absolutely no hint of the exquisite Baroque interior! Went inside from brilliant sunlight, so it took my eyes a few minutes to adapt to the relative darkness, but when they did, I was nearly blown away! To use the term ‘spectacular’ would be an understatement!

Found it interesting that this church was one of the few buildings to have survived the 1755 earthquake!

Each of the chapels and reliquary altars has relevant information in both Portuguese and English.

Other info:

Perhaps the easiest way of getting to the São Roque Church is to simply walk up Calçada da Glória (from the Restauradores metro stop) then, at the top, turn left onto R. de Pedro de Alcântara. Takes less than 5 minutes to reach the Church. With this option, it’s also far faster to skip the funicular car and just hike up the hill on foot.

The church’s hours are posted near the front door. At date of visit (23 July 2021), hours listed as follows:
Open from 10 am to 6 pm from Tuesday to Sunday
Closed on Monday‬

‪We found this the most stunning of the churches and cathedral visited in Lisbon. Not attractive externally it is very special inside. Not just for the ornate striking altar, which you find in many churches, but the 12 alcove altars, six on each side, are so beautiful and ornate with gilded woodwork, 18th century paintings and marble finishings each being very different. Combined with the ceiling artwork it was excellent.‬

‪When you approach the church, it does not look like much to see. But, wait until you walk inside! WOW! The interior is other-worldly! There are 8 chapels, 4 on each side, and each one has exquisite detail. I am not a person who belongs to organized religion, but I do love touring churches throughout the world because of the art used in them. And this one tops most I have seen. From the gorgeous ceiling to the main chapel, to each chapel on the sides, you will be amazed at the beauty this place has to offer. And take a few moments to tour the museum next door. It is not very big, but is filled with more beautiful things that have been a part of the order that the church belongs to, as well as things that were a part of the church.‬

‪The exterior looks very plain, but once you go inside, it's definitely a wow feeling...one of the most ornate churches I've ever seen! There's no entry fee for the church, only if you visit the adjoining museum‬

‪From the outside, the church does not make a great impression, while the interior dazzles with its baroque richness, intricate decorations. A single-nave church with many side altars. Each altar is different. Everyone worth attention. Amazing wall and ceiling decorations, beautiful reliquaries, chapels. Especially St. John the Baptist - the last one on the left in front of the presbytery. This chapel and altar was built in Rome in the 17th century, and at the time of its creation was the most expensive chapel in the world. The ceiling of the church has been covered with the Trompe-l'œil technique to create a three-dimensional illusion. An interesting fact is that this church is one of the buildings that survived the tragic earthquake of 1755 in Lisbon. Many people walk past the church and never entering inside and never discovering one of Lisbon's greatest jewels. When visiting Lisbon, it is worth going there, going in and seeing, the impressions will be unforgettable for sure. Admission to the church is free. Next to the church is the Museu de Sao Roque.‬

‪In the XVI century, the place where the Church is located was located outside the city walls at a sufficient distance from the city, which was where Alfama is now. This was important because there was a cemetery where the victims of the plague were buried. Where there is a cemetery, there is a chapel! The chapel was dedicated to Saint Roque of Montpellier, France, the patron Saint of the plague-sick (in the middle ages, the saints ' official duties were defined no worse than now). Growing in power in the Wake of the counter-Reformation, the Jesuit order took control of the chapel and built a Church here. It is the personification of Jesuit morality. Underlined (if not demonstrative) modest outwardly, it impresses with luxury inside. This contrast is inherent in the Baroque era, which adored theatricality, which replaced the gradually fading religiosity. The combination of marble, gilded carvings and tiled panels create an amazing feeling. The effect is enhanced by the play of light and shadow, characteristic of mannerism. The most luxurious of the chapels dedicated to John the Baptist arrived in disassembled form from Rome in 1747. Its authors were the famous Roman architects Nicola Salvi and Luigi Vanvitelli. Putting it together was a non-trivial task, given that the apparent murals are actually mosaics. Such visual tricks (trompe l'oeil), there is still some in the Church. The real Jesuit philosophy is set in stone. Deceptive facade, false ceiling. However, it is a great happiness that we have the happiness to see this at all. The fact is that this Church, unlike most of the neighboring ones, survived the earthquake of 1755. Probably, the reason is also in the Jesuits who always bet on education. They picked up honest and intelligent builders who were stronger than even the "Great" earthquake.‬
