Built in 1671 as a hunting pavilion, the palace is still the private residence of the Marquesses of Fronteira. As such, all visits to inside the palace are guided. Multi-lingual guides will take you through one of the most beautiful houses in all of Lisbon.

Check out:

  • Room of the Battles, with scenes from the Portuguese Restoration War.
  • The 16th century chapel
  • The Dining Room, decorated with paintings by Domingos Antonio de Sequeira.

The mansion’s most striking delight, though, is the garden outside. 5.5 hectare in size, it is especially famous for the busts of Kings of Portugal; and for the statues of the seven gods associated with the Classical Planets.

  • EUR 3 if visiting the gardens only.

  • The inside of the palace is only open to visitors in the morning.

  • Incredible place! You can either buy a ticket just for the garden, which is amazing, or a combo with a guided tour (in English or Portuguese) for the palace. Tours are not scheduled on every hour so try to find out when they are, we had two hours to spare, but we explored the garden at that time, even set there for half an hour and rest. Garden is definitely a must see, palace is much more modest compared to it, but out tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information and details.

  • Charming residence. The guide (a lovely British lady) shared a bit of history of this noble family, showed us around and left us craving even more of the stories. The place was being renovated the time I visited, nevertheless I really recommend it, it is going to be beautiful once restored.

  • The palace is very beautiful. All visits happen in the form of a guided tour. The most impressive "attraction" is the set of tiles (azuleijos) showing the impact of the Fronteira family in the history of Portugal. The gardens are also very beautiful. I recommend they offer a lower fee for the elders like all other touristic places in Lisbon.

  • We just went to the garden and it was worth the trip! Definitely check this place out if you are in the area. We walked here after going to the Lisbon Zoo and definitely enjoyed it.

  • we went there for a wedding, spectacular place. totally recommend it to visit if you are in Lisbon.
