The façade is plain, but the interior of this 15th-century church was transformed into one of Portugal's most exceptional examples of woodwork and gilding in the 1600s.
Even after seeing the even more over-the-top interior of São Francisco Church, this rococo and baroque masterpiece doesn't fail to impress.
It's somewhat hidden behind a small square, so it may seem a little hard to find, but it's just a few steps from behind Batalha Square.
Location: Largo 1 de Dezembro
