This impressive building dominates the surrounding area and should be included in your Alfama wanderings. A little stark on the inside. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Church of Santa Engrácia feel and looks like a poor second cousin to the Dome of Les Invalides in Paris on which it was clearly modeled. It holds the remains of some National heroes and important personages. Its free to enter unless you wanna go...More

17th century church converted into the National Pantheon. Many important Portuguese people are buried here. The building is absolutely beautiful. You have to go inside. Also venture up to the roof for a nice view. See photographs.

spectacular option for those looking for a more
