The most impressive feature to my eye is the painted ceiling, which is quite lovely. Otherwise another baroque church, impressive scale as it probably just serves a neighborhood.

Not large, but very much worth a visit. Excellent art and simple but clean alter and a ceiling that is excellent.

Pretty much it to be honest. It's "nice" but nothing "special". If you like to see churches it's going to be okay but it lacks the hallelujah factor!

It is great that Lisbon has so many beautiful churches where it is possible to enjoy some stillness and quiet amidst the bustle of the streets outside. This one feels like a reward for getting most of the way up the hill in Chiado!

Basilica dos Martires is next to the Baixa-Chiado Metro on the busy street and square. Drop in for a bit of peace and maybe contemplation. Harmonious interior with baroque features with unusual but effective ornate green ceiling.

This beautiful church is located on a rather busy shopping and touristic street, However, once you get inside, the acoustics of the church somehow manages to isolate all the noise from the street outside. Worth a 5-minute visit.

Absolutely stunning - finally something to compare to the colors and beauty of the Italian churches.Could not have enough awe to appreciate this gem.Highly recommended, especially when tired of trendy shopping around. 10 min. uphill walk from Rossio, or use store elevator. Tramway 28 also...More

This Church is on a street lined with stores and shops with things I could never afford. It was been well maintained and is quite lovely inside. It is free to visit but I did by the little booklet they had for sale.
