  • Museum-Lapidary absolutely unique in a convent now uncovered and that, in addition to the value of the place, offers a true richness of works especially in stone. Not to be missed

  • A place that has vivid marks of the history of Lisbon! We were able to attend the event of projections and it was really amazing, which does not diminish the beauty of the place to the natural! It is very worth to be seen and known!!

  • Loved this place. Quite a traditional museum (no interactive stuff, probably not for the kids) but lots of fascinating stuff. The mummies alone justify the entry, but I particularly liked the carving of the alchemist in his study.
  • A visit is totally worth it! What a beautiful place with such great historical value. Go here when you visit Lisbon.
