This is a good place to start the ride on the #28 old fashioned trolley ride through the Alfama and other old Lisbon neighborhoods. You have to catch it here to get a seat to enjoy the ride. Anywhere else and you'll stand if you can get on.

While some people may not consider this a typical tourist destination, we found it to be fascinating. We have never been to such an impressive cemetery. It is located right at the end of tram 28's run. Other than the resident cats and a few Portuguese visitors, we had the place to ourselves. It is very well maintained and full... More

At the end of tram 28 and steps from a lovely market building, the pleasures cemetery is well worth a visit. It was a gloriously clear day so we got excellent views of the 25th of April bridge.

This is not the typical tourist site but it is a good glimpse into the culture of Portugal. This is one of the most beautiful and interesting cemetery I've visited. There's even streets in this cemetery. Totally amazing. Definitely a must visit.

A peaceful place to wander on a sunny day. Avenues of above-ground crypts are laid out like a small suburb, with surprising things to see around many corners. Look for the monument to Lisbon's firefighters, and the tomb lovingly shaped like a carpenter's workbench complete with carved stone tools. The trip out on Tram 28 is an essential Lisbon experience... More

We would not normally get the idea to come to see a cemetery had it not been recommended in a guide book. We took a taxi to get there. Some of the tombs look more like little chapels and are true pieces of art. Some are very old. As you walk slowly down, breathing in the melancholic atmosphere, you will... More

One of the most beautiful cemetery parks you may find. Huge trees, the cemetery organised by roads for all the new and old, big and small mausoleums, some built for famous personalities, some owned by rich families. You could spend hours walking around and guessing about the history behind each tomb or monument. Lies at one end of the famous... More

I would highly recommend a visit to Cemiterio dos Prazeres. It sounds like a morbid thing to do but the setting is very serene. This cemetery dates back to the late 1700's and all of the vaults are above ground. Some of them have glass doors where you can view inside. The vaults are beautiful, weathered pieces of art. At...

The cemetery is for me one of the highlights of Lisbon. You can get there by taking tram 28. At the final stop you see the entrance of the cemetery. We walked along the small houses and enjoyed the serene atmosphere.
