Time Out says

Bury your morbid preconceptions. Made almost exclusively of burial vaults, the Prazeres Cemetery was built in the Romantic era in 1833, after the outbreak of a “cholera morbus” epidemic. The chapel houses the old autopsy room and, since 2001, of the Museum Centre. Follow the guided tour around the last residence of various celebrities and admire the architectural heritage. This is also the site of the largest and oldest concentration of cypress trees in the Iberian Peninsula.
