17th century church converted into the National Pantheon. Many important Portuguese people are buried here. The building is absolutely beautiful. You have to go inside. Also venture up to the roof for a nice view. See photographs.

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
