4 | Igreja de S.Roque » Known for having the chapel that many say is "the world’s richest," this church has one of the plainest façades but one of the most magnificent interiors in Lisbon. That chapel is that of St. John the Baptist, commissioned in Rome in 1742, to be brought piece by piece to Lisbon. It’s a treasure considered a true work of art, for the richness of the materials (which include ivory, agate, lapis lazuli and gold) and for . chapels in gilding, marble, tiled art paintings.
