Monuments to visit Portugal in Lisbon
The construction of this Baroque church began in 1682 and lasted 284 years!
But it was worth waiting for the end of the work, because today the monument is one of the most beautiful of Lisbon. The interior was built of marble and its roof is a giant dome. It is possible to climb the 187 steps to the terrace to enjoy the view over Alfama and the Tejo (Tagus) River. There is also an elevator to go to the top.
Today the church is known as the National Pantheon, is the home tumb to some Portuguese heroes, like Vasco da Gama, as well as some kings.
