National Pantheon (Santa Engrácia Church)
Built in baroque architectural style, this Church is one of the most beautiful churches of Lisbon. It took long 284 years to be build and now it is a national monument and one of the symbols of Lisbon. Since 1910 it is also a National Pantheon.
Panteon
The National Pantheon, stands on the site of an earlier church that was torn down after being desecrated by a robbery in 1630. A Jew was blamed for this and executed, but was later exonerated. Legend says that before dying he cursed the rebuilding of the church because of the conviction of an innocent man. The plan to reconstruct (by master stonemason Joao Antunes, bearing many similarities to Peruzzi’s plans for St. Peter’s in Rome) did take several centuries to be completed, only finished in 1966.
