Guided tours at Prazeres Cemetery

In May and June, jacaranda trees paint the city of Lisbon in shades of purple. In the city's cemeteries, the jacaranda trees cover the mausoleums and graves with their purple flowers, creating a magical atmosphere.

In this first year of participation in the Week of Discovering European Cemeteries, the Lisbon City Council proposes a series of visits that culminate in a weekend dedicated to jacarandas and their history.

  • Saturday, 11 May 2024, at 11:00 am - Poets and Writers at Prazeres Cemetery (free guided tour);
  • Saturday, 18 May 2024, at 10:30 am - Funeral Architecture at Prazeres Cemetery (free guided tour);
  • Saturday, 25 May 2024, at 11:00 am - Jacaranda Weekend at Prazeres Cemetery (free guided tour).
We invite everyone to visit and discover Lisbon's cemeteries in this special week.
