It's a beautiful church or should I say remains of what was a beautiful church. The roof was destroyed during the earthquake in the 1700s but the rest of the architecture is amazing. The museum inside with the archaeological findings is interesting too. It is right in the middle of all the other main areas so if you have the time, do check this out and you won't be disappointed.
Great place. Ruins & museum act as a permanent reminder of the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake. A good easy to digest museum, with well- labelled exhibits & a great video with potted history of the place. Thoroughly recommended.
