Lisbon again.. but this time not Prazeres but Cemiterio Alto de Sao Joao

And what a long name for a Cemetery it is.

It is the by far the biggest Cemetery in Lisbon, but it's not quite as fascinating as the Prazeres. Still a good place to go as my pictures will proove.

The cemetery itself has a strange feeling: It is like a city for the dead. Alleys full of graves that remind you of houses where the dead dwell. You can peek into the doors and see the coffins... most of them slowly rotting. It has a rather creepy feeling.

The biggest difference between Prazeres and this one is the lack of sculptures. There were a few but it wasn't as rich as Prazeres itself.

Here are the Pictures:
