Cemitério dos Ingleses

Cemitério dos Ingleses (‘British Cemetery’) was founded in 1717 and  is a burial place for mostly non-Portuguese inhabitants of Lisbon and its surrounding areas.  Perhaps the most famous person buried here is Henry Fielding, the English novelist and dramatist who came to Lisbon in 1754 to find a cure for his ailments and never left as he died in Lisbon only 2 months after his arrival.
