Built in the early 1500s it is a very rare example of Mannerist architecture in Portugal. You cannot visit inside, but the façade is worth the visit.

Marvellous facade, bit run down and portico full of pigeon guano and what smelled like human P** Pity one can't visit the interior, although much may have been dismantled.

Only saw it from the outside. The facade is okay but nothing out of the ordinary. Just another church.

Evora has so many churchs, this one is an architetural masterpiece, unfortunaly it was closed to visitors at the time. Go and see!

Kind of an ugly exterior - mixture of different styles. As well, how do you find the entrance and is there an entrance? Give this a miss.
