Beautiful well maintained cemetery. Unfortunately it’s a shame that they/manager do not feed the cats. I brought food and one of the cats was desperately hungry it was so very sad. They were all so very hungry ! While the damn manager in his office has loads of huge cans of wet food and a huge bag of dry food! I ended up pouring fresh water cause he and the other people who work there can’t even do that!! Simply shameful the way they treats animals /cats!!!!

I found the Cemiterio lovely and poignant, but I'm doing research on end-of-life issues. Not recommended for the easily creeped out or those looking for a morbid thrill; these are real mausoleums of real people from real families. If you can be respectful and appreciate the beauty, go for it.

Very beautiful and peaceful place. Not an ordinary cemetery. Well worth the visit. You can take a peek inside the magnificent tombs and see very old and surprising coffins as well as pictures and other artifacts. Not to mention numerous cats. Pro tip: grab a tram 28 after visiting. It departs right outside the cemetery gates and this rout takes you to Alfama through picturesque districts. This route is the best for tourists thus it gets very crowded and here you have the 1st stop, so there's a good chance to sit and enjoy the whole route.

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 end of the cemetery you are rewarded with an outstanding view of the bridge and the statue of Christ. It's an off the beaten path experience but worth the trip.

I often visit local cemeteries when on holiday. I'm a keen photographer and find I get some great shots in them whilst also viewing the different styles of mausoleums and graves. This one is no exception and is easily reached by tram. The cemetery was very quiet when I visited, just a few people walking around. There are very good views of the 25th April Bridge from the cemetery as well as lines of mausoleums and graves all in well tended lines. Well worth seeking out for a few quiet hours in Lisbon.

This cemetery is a huge and amazing place...row upon row of elaborate mausoleums, it seems endless...I visited on a dark and rainy day, nobody around, kind of spooky! If you go all to way to the back, there's a great view towards the big bridge

At the end of tram 28’s route, this cemetery is absolutely fascinating. The mausoleums vary widely from the small and simple to the large and elaborate. The fact that many have windows, so that you can see the caskets themselves, is something I’ve not seen before. It’s worth an hour or two.

I came across by accident but what an amazing place. I don't usually frequent cemeteries but this is so ornate. Some of the memorials are true works of art. A lot of wealth can be seen in the sizes of the tombs.

The best place in Lisbon to take time-out for a well-deserved rest. The hardest part is getting out again.

I'm not a high school Goth, but I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, especially in foreign countries. This cemetery is not only beautiful and bucolic, as are most cemeteries, but it offers something unique in the sense that many of the tombs are outfitted with glass doors, which allow you to peer inside and see the contents. Don't worry, it's less grisly than it sounds. You mostly see coffins and some old photos plus religious artifacts and icons. The pathways are wide and accommodating and it's a perfect size -- large enough to make it worth the visit but small enough to really do a deep dive if you so choose. An added bonus is on-site restrooms, nearby shopping and cafes, and a group of friendly cats that hang out near the groundskeepers office, begging for pets and treats. I greatly enjoyed this cemetery and highly recommend making the trip. It's safe and accessible off several transportation lines. Our Uber driver drove us out there and said he regularly makes dropoffs here.
