NATIONAL PANTHEON

 

DESCRIPTION:

 

The National Pantheon is located in the historic district of Santa Clara, on the original site of the church of Santa Engrácia. It houses the tombs of Portugal’s major historic celebrities.
Founded in the second half of the 16th century, the building was totally rebuilt at the end of the 17th century by the architect João Antunes. Even though it was never used as a place of worship, it still preserves, under its modern dome, a majestic nave enlivened by a polychrome marble decoration typical of the Portuguese Baroque architecture.
Being an icon of Lisbon’s cityscape and having a privileged location, as it overlooks the city’s historic centre and the river Tagus, it is listed as a National Monument.
