Royal Pantheon of the House of Braganza
|Panteão Real da Casa de Bragança|
Overview of the pantheon
|Location||Monastery of São Vicente de Fora|
The Royal Pantheon of the House of Braganza (Portuguese:Panteão Real da Casa de Bragança), located in the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora in Lisbon, Portugal, is the final resting place for the majority of the Braganza monarchs of Portugal and their families.
The Pantheon was created under orders from Ferdinand II of Portugal, transforming the old refectory of the monastery into the burial place it is today. The majority of the tombs are located on the sides of the pantheon, and are simple marble boxes with spaces of four tombs. If the tomb is of a monarch, it has a crown engraved in gold on the side of the tomb and a crown placed on top of the entire set of tombs. The tombs in the center aisle of the pantheon are those belonging to Carlos I of Portugal, Manuel II of Portugal, and Luís Filipe, Prince Royal of Portugal; the two martyrs of the Lisbon Regicide and the last King of Portugal
