"Largo Trindade Coelho" Igreja de São Roque & Sacred Art Museum Tip by sue_stone
Igreja de São Roque & Sacred Art Museum, Lisbon: 17 reviews and 46 photos
Located in Barrio Alto, Largo Trinidad Coelho is an unassuming square home to one of the hidden gems of the district.
The Irena de Sao Roue is a 16th-century Jesuit church located at the northern end of the square. From the outside it is very plain looking and easily passed by without a second glance. But take the time to pop your head inside as you will be amazed at the grandeur within.
The interior is lavish - filled with marble, amethyst and ivory, along with Florentine hand painted tiles. There are frescoes on the wood-panelled ceiling and golden chapels.
Adjacent to the church is the Museu de Sao Roué, which houses a collection of 16th & 17-century sacred art.
