Prazeres Cemetery [Cemitério dos Prazeres], also known as the ‘Cemetery of Pleasures’, is a municipal cemetery in Lisbon and the largest of its kind in Portugal’s capital. It was established in 1833, following a cholera epidemic that broke out in June the same year. Its second name (Cemetery of Pleasures) probably refers to the property that was situated at the same spot before the cemetery was built, which was a favorite destination for trips at the time. Many notable Portuguese personalities are buried here.
