Started in 1795, the Ajuda National Palace was the official residence of the Portuguese royal family since the reign of King Luís I (1861) until the end of the monarchy in 1910. Today is the only palace opened in Lisbon which preserves the layout and decor of the rooms, so you can taste a bit of the XIX century. With an exceptional view over the Tagus river, and with a wide range of centuries represented (XV to XX), its peaces are mainly from the XVIII and XIX centuries where jewelry, textiles, furniture, glass and ceramics, as well as collections of painting, printmaking, sculpture and photography, articulate harmoniously, creating an unforgettable environment.
OPEN: 10h00-17h30. Closed: Wednesdays, January 1st, Easter Sunday, May 1st, and December 25th
