Why locals love it

There are several illustrious personages who are buried there, for example one of the most famous Fado singers, Amália Rodrigues; several writers like Almeida Garret or Aquilino Ribeiro; and also some Presidents of the Republic. Inside you can find the interior paved with colored marble and outside you can’t miss the giant dome.

Why you should visit it

It was the first building in baroque style in the country, with the first stone launched in 1682. However the works lasted so long that gave rise to the popular expression “works of Santa Engrácia” to designate something that never ends. It was only in the year 1966 that the church was completed. Sundays and Public Holidays is free till 2 pm.

Special tip

If you don’t mind climbing 187 steps, go to the terrace at the top and enjoy the wonderful view over Tejo River and the city itself.

It's the ultimate graveyard for all the portuguese heroes. The architecture is amazing and inside you have the remains of sports people, presidentes, poets, discoveres, singers, etc etc etc
