    A gorgeous church with a unique painted wooden ceiling and a very narrow altar that gives it elegant proportions. A comforting respite in the midst of a tourist filled neighbourhood.

    (Translated by Google) Founded on the ex convent of the barefoot Carmelites of 1606, this church dedicated by the saint was used as a barracks, to pass to the Evangelical Lusitanians in 1898. It has a style reminiscent of the Renaissance but distinctly rigid, with a double symmetrical bell tower on the main facade. This external composure vanishes inside where the only nave present has a richly frescoed ceiling with a spectacular trompe l'oeil, which simulates an upper floor consisting of a colonnade that frames the divine scene of saints in paradise. The altar dedicated to the saint is golden and the ceiling above the altar proposes rich high-reliefs with plant motifs, triumphs of cherubs and fake reliefs. This wonder is located in the Cais de Sodré district, very close to the market of the same name where you can also go and stock up on an afternoon snack. (Original) Fondata sull'ex convento dei carmelitani scalzi del 1606 questa chiesa dedicata dal santo fu utilizzata come caserma, per passare ai lusitani evangelici nel 1898. Ha uno stile che ricorda quello rinascimentale ma spiccatamente rigido, con un doppio campanile simmetrico sulla facciata principale. Questa sua compostezza esterna svanisce al suo interno dove l'unica navata presente ha un soffitto riccamente affrescato con un trompe l'oeil spettacolare, il quale simula un piano superiore costituito da un colonnato che incornicia la scena divina di santi in paradiso. L'altare dedicato al santo è d'oro e il soffitto sopra l'altare propone ricchi altorilievi con motivi vegetali, trionfi di putti e finti rilievi. Questa meraviglia si trova nel quartiere Cais de Sodré, molto vicina al mercato omonimo dove potete anche andare a rifornirvi di uno spuntino pomeridiano.

    (Translated by Google) Church in the square of the same name, was rebuilt in 1768 after the earthquake of 1755 destroyed it and within the plan to recover the city, from which date most of the buildings. It makes a very harmonious ensemble with the fountain and the square. Little visited (Original) Igrexa na praza do mesmo nome, foi reconstruida no 1768 despois de que o terremoto do 1755 a destruira e dentro do plan para recuperar a cidade, do cal datan a maior parte das edificacións. Fai un conxunto moi armònico coa fonte e a praza. Pouco visitada

    (Translated by Google) This Church, also known as Igreja do Corpo Santo, is located in the Square of the same name in the city of Lisbon, near Cais do Sodré. It was built on the ruins of a 15th century temple, destroyed by the The 1755 earthquake that deeply shook this part of the city. Work began in 1768 , as part of the Pombaline reconstruction , under a project by the architect Francisco de Abreu , following a layout identical to the Church of the Convent of Mafra. Due to the elegance of the whole complex, well integrated in Largo de S. Paulo or Corpo Santo, but also for the paintings that decorate its interior, side chapels and ceiling, by painters João Grassi, Pedro Alexandrino de Carvalho and Jerónimo de Andrade, I recommend a visit . (Original) Esta Igreja , também conhecida por Igreja do Corpo Santo , situa-se no Largo do mesmo nome na cidade de Lisboa , próximo do Cais do Sodré. Foi edificada sobre as ruínas de um templo do século XV , destruído pelo Terramoto de 1755 que abalou profundamente esta zona da cidade . Os trabalhos tiveram início em 1768 , no âmbito da reconstrução pombalina , sob projecto do arquitecto Francisco de Abreu , seguindo um traçado idêntico à Igreja do Convento de Mafra . Pela elegância de todo o conjunto bem integrado no Largo de S. Paulo ou do Corpo Santo , mas igualmente pelas pinturas que decoram o seu interior , capelas laterais e tecto , dos pintores João Grassi , Pedro Alexandrino de Carvalho e Jerónimo de Andrade , recomendo uma visita .

    (Translated by Google) For being a neoclassical church, it's not bad. Especially noteworthy is its painted ceiling that imitates higher architecture. The main chapel has a good decoration that combines stuccos with painting. (Original) Para ser una iglesia neoclásica, no está mal. Destaca especialmente su techo pintado que imita una arquitectura más alta. La capilla mayor tiene una buena decoración que combina los estucos con la pintura.
