History of the Sao Roque Church and location of the hotel in Bairro Alto

Located in the "high" old city of central Lisbon, the church São Roque or Igreja de São Roque in Portugal welcomes hundreds to thousands of visitors every day. With its typical baroque style of the 15th century, it was built under Dom João V. Overall, it is adorned with golden woodwork and luxuriously decorated with other silver colours. The church, called Saint-Roch in English, tells a rich and deep priestly history, whose most precious goods still remain in the place.

History of the church São Roque

Built in 1565, the church of São Roque is dedicated to the patron saint of the sick who suffered from the plague that ravaged much of Lisbon around 1505. Designed by the architect Afonso Alvarez, it was first the professional residence of the first Jesuits settled outside Rome. Ten years after this installation, the Italian architect Fillipo Terzi was hired to rework the design of the building and modify the interior fittings. A survivor of the earthquake that struck Lisbon in 1755, it was in 1768 that the church of São Roque and its auxiliary building were transferred by royal charter to the "House of Mercy". This congregation allowed the church to bear the title of parish until today. A large part of the house has become a museum of sacred art and contains many jewels of priesthood. It also houses eight magnificent chapels and three altars where masses are still celebrated today for all. On the ceiling of the Igreja de São Roque there is a splendid and bewitching painting representing scenes from the Apocalypse. The painted works in this church are almost identical to those found in Rome.

The 9 Hotel Mercy is ideally located to visit the Bairro Alto of Lisbon.

A true symbol of epic literature, this renowned author gives his name to a beautiful open space square. The beauty of the architectural buildings and the drawings that are engraved on the ground give the charm to this historical place that has become more and more touristic.

The Cold Greenhouses, around 20 minutes by bus via the Azul line

At the current location of the Lisbon cold greenhouse was a basalt quarry in the early 19th century. The quarry ceased operation because of a water source which affected quarrying.

This is how, in 1912, upon the initiative of a gardener, a sanctuary area was created for delicate plants from all over the world, cultivated for the plantations of the Avenida da Liberdade.

World War I delayed this plan, and the plants took root in this small sheltered place.

In 1926, architect and painter Raul Carapinha, after discovering this beautiful green area, devised a project aimed at turning it into a greenhouse, which was completed in 1930 and officially inaugurated three years later.
