Only 5 Euros to get in - worth it. Gorgeous architectural details on the building and artifacts they’ve preserved. Some of the rooms contain gorgeous tile work showing the end of Jesus’ life. Great...

It was a magnificent site and I was appalled to see this “church with no roof “ which is still so beautiful and grand. It’s amazing that even after about 260 years and 2 earth quakes and tsunami, these walls and arches are still standing on the ground. The museum is amazing as well and exhibits are very impressive. I believe this is one of must see site in Lisbon. Strongly recommended.
Had a interesting visit learning and discovering history. We went for the Lisbon under stars light show and it was great. Little bit too crowded and could have had a bit more details. Ruins itself is pretty simple and fast to observe, but overall a good visit.
