Description

At the height of Jesuit influence in Portugal in the 16th century, the church of So Roque was built. It was designed to honour the Portuguese expedition of Vasco da Gama after finding a sea route to India through the Cape of Good Hope in 1498. The Chapel of John the Baptists has gained the distinction of being the most pricey chapel in the world.
