A great example of the Romantic style in Portugal, Prazeres Cemetery is the final resting place of many of the country’s most illustrious figures. A kind of open-air museum, it is a repository of important information on Portuguese modern history, architecture, urban planning, sculpture, as well as the changes approaches to the idea of death over the years. With its ambience marked by the serenity of the impressive cypresses, to walk through this space is to learn the history documented on its countless tombs, like for example, the Palmela Tomb, the largest private tomb in Europe.
