Panteao Nacional (National Pantheon)

While intended to be a church, this structure now pays homage to the heroes and heroines of Portugal including explorer Vasco da Gama and fadista Amalia Rodrigues. While the outside of the structure is porcelain white, the dome within, being all pink marble and gold lining, resembles a Faberge egg. Like most of Lisbon’s attractions, this one also boasts a brilliant view of the river.
