Certainly not as old as Pantheon in Rome but it does rival those in Paris and Rome in grandeur. Off the tourist track so no crowds. Close by is the St Vincent's church where a few of the kings were buried. If you happen to go on Tuesday or Sat, there is a flea market in between. The 28 tram... More

Slightly off the beaten path, this massive historical monument, while not ancient, is beautiful for its architecture and the truly stunning views of Lisbon that it offers. The immediate neighborhood is also quite charming and worth exploring.

My wife, two children, relatives and I visited Lisbon in August and September 2016. The Pantheon is worth a visit and you can see the tombs of some famous people such as Vasco Da Gama. You can also climb up to the top which I decided not to do. In the streets going downhill from the Pantheon, I was accosted... More

The Pantheon offers a hall with a few tombstones of people who were important in Portuguese history like Vasco Da Gama, writers, presidents… Beautiful on outside and inside. When climbing the stairs all the way up to the dome the view down is awe-aspiring but scary. Not for the faint of heart. Must visit when in Lisbon! Free entry first... More

very cheap at 4 euros each and a beautiful building to boot, larger on the inside than it looks and a beautiful view of the local area from the roof

The National Pantheon looks like a church, but is in fact a shrine to the great and the good of Portuguese life; scientists, politicians, writers and poets. Entrance is only 4 Euros, and for that you can explore at your leisure, learn a little about key figures from Portuguese culture, and enjoy the architecture. Definitely take the time to climb...

The Pantheon itself is a very beautiful building and worth seeing, however, there aren't too many things to see inside aside from the tombs of some famous Portuguese individuals (singers, politicians, football players). Note: Vasco da Gama and Luis de Camoes are buried in the Jeronimos Monastery, these tombs are just symbolic. If you're in the area and you have... More

Staying in Graca & Sao Vicente

Neighbourhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
