Mannerist and baroque architecture dominate the São Roque Church, one of the few buildings in Lisbon that survived the 1755 earthquake, practically without a scratch. As such, both the church and auxiliary residence were given to charity Santa Casa da Misericórdia, to replace its own buildings destroyed in the seism. This is still the case today, as the church catches the attention of anyone who passes by. After all, this is one of the most beautiful churches in the city, built at the end of the 16th century.
