National Pantheon – Gallery


  • This is the Church of Santa Engrácia, also known as the National Pantheon!
    So this is where important Portuguese people are buried! It’s a beautiful building, but unfortunately we couldn’t go inside! And to make things worse, it started raining when I started taking photos, which happens to me all the time haha, so we had to leave after 5 minutes. Fortunately some of them look good enough to share here!
    I took these photos when I went to Lisbon back in February and they’ve been stored in my hard drive ever since, I wasn’t sure how to edit them because Architectural photography isn’t exactly my forte, but I’m happy with how they turned out, I think they look good with lots of details and textures and I think they make the National Pantheon look kind of mysterious! 😀
    It’s a place that i’d definitely like to visit again and you should too if you’re ever in Lisbon! 🙂
    (just don’t forget to bring a tripod and an umbrella)

    PS: Expect more Architectural Photography because I have hundreds of them that I’m going to start editing now. 🙂

      • Yeah me too!! 😀 But I wasn’t lucky at all, it was closed, they were rehearsing something inside and it started raining, damn! 😀 But i’m glad you like it, it is indeed beautiful!


      • Thank you very much Alex! I’m impressed with myself, I was kind of lost when i started editing them because they didn’t look good in color, then i remembered to use Silver Efex and they just popped! hihi 😀 Me too, that’s one of my favorites! 😀


    1. For one who says architectural photography isn’t his forte: I disagree! These are wonderful and frankly, the weather that day was to your advantage. Just wonderful!


      • Awww thank you so much!! I’m glad you think so, that means a lot to me! 😀 The bad thing about the weather is that we got soaked and I had to put my camera in my bag hehe 😀 other than that it was great! And this place is beautiful, it’s full of old historic buildings, I really enjoyed it 🙂
