At the last destination of the Tram 28, Prazeres direction, you'll discover one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe, a true hidden gem.
Prazeres Cemetery is like an open-air museum that impresses by its size, art and architecture, as well as its hill top location, offering incredible views over the 25th of April bridge and the Tagus river.
On this tour, I’ll introduce you to people who were once some of Lisbon’s most influential citizens, from politicians and businessmen to artists and aristocrats. I’ll also tell you about the architects, artists and masons who left a mark here with their work, by helping to construct the elaborate mausoleums and tombs that line the cemetery’s alleys, in the shade of centenary cypress trees.
On this tour, I’ll show you:
• Tombs of freemasons, aristocrats, artists, writers and famous politicians
• Masterpieces of sculpture and architecture
• Beautiful memorials and monuments
• Romantic and Masonic symbols from the 19th century
• The oldest and largest collection of cypress trees on the Iberian Peninsula
