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

This Pantheon is absolutely the winner for me against the Pantheon in Rome. The architecture is just amazing and monumental. The entry is only €4/person and you get the whole Pantheon with the interior, the gravesite of some of the most famous explorers and the dome which offer you a 360 degree city view. There was also an interesting exhibitions... More

The neighbourhood is almost a must-go, while the monument isn't. Look at it from the outside and that's it.

We were on a cruise and with the ship berthed just outside the old town, we had a good view of this all white, beautiful church from the deck. It is not a large church. The design and the architecture are exquisite and impressive. Backed by a blue sky, it offers undoubtedly an excellent photo opportunity. The climb from the... More

Had arrived Lisbon early and left luggage at hotel, headed here for mid-day. Climbed the stairs to the choir and gained access to roof which has great views over Lisbon and onto Ponte 25 Abril.

Probably one of the most beautiful and impressive buildings of the city, with free admission for those who have the Lisboa Card. Absolutely spectacular 360 ° panorama from the upper terrace of the entire Lisbon, not to be missed!

The Pantheon is almost hidden despite its size amongst the hills then you find it and LOVE it. Yes you have to pay to get in, but this means it is much quieter than all the rest and is cavernous. The design means that the eerie choral music playing seems to come out of the walls. It is a fitting... More

You might think it's a terrible thing to say, but the truth is there is only so much old stones and churches one can bear to see in one day. It's a lovely building, and for those who like it, go for it, to the top. We were happy enough just going around and passing our heads through the door.

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.
