What you'll do

The main reason for this experience is to give the guests one of the most beautiful and imposing cemeteries in the world! My experience is intended to share with you fantastic stories of famous people who are in graves! To make known who these personalities were; what they did; loves and failures; life stories and the motive that led them to be the last address in the most powerful funerary grave! The Prazeres cemetery was built in 1833 at a time when there was a serious colera epidemic oin Lisbon that decimated thousands of people. Some of them were going to stop at the mass graves, others were to be found in tombstones that look more like mausoleums with Masonic symbols and others with symbologies of sacred art. I will tell you these stories and details in their last addresses in order to give to my guests real and factual knowledge based on what we are observing! The Cemetery of Prazeres is not just another cemetery. Located in the western part of Lisbon, it is considered the most elitist of Portuguese cemeteries, where great names of Portuguese History, actors, singers, politicians and aristocrats are buried. And in addition to a cemetery, it is considered an open-air museum!

I'm a history buff! All my life I have been interested in Universal History and off course, my Country History! I love being able to share my knowledge with people? Because? Because only then, Knowledge does it make sense to me! I love traveling and one of the trips of my life was made 20 years ago when I studied a year in the USA to make the 12th GD. I can say that I am a citizen of the world! One of the qualities that people define me is their sense of humor and the great desire to help others in any way! For me there are no obstacles, but solutions! I love Portugal and all its culture!
