The Church of Santa Engrácia is a 17th century monument in Lisbon Portugal. It is an impressive building inside and out, and is definitely a must-see attraction in Lisboa. My apartment was steps away, and so I took my time to take it in, visiting the insides on my last day. Construction began in 1681 and was not completed until 1966. It has now been converted into the National Pantheon.
The views within and from above are splendid. The dome appears much larger when you are inside. Portuguese VIP’s are buried inside. It is located in the neighbourhood of Alfama.
