Palácio dos Marqueses da Fronteira

Built in the late 17th century, the Palace of the Marquises, often called the Palácio Fronteira, remains one of the capital's most beautiful houses, containing splendid reception rooms with 17th- and 18th-century tiles, contemporary furniture, and paintings. Note that visits to this still-family-owned property are limited to guided tours in the morning—the palace itself is usually closed to visitors in the afternoon. The grounds have a terraced walk, a topiary garden, a statuary, and fountains. Some of the city's finest azulejos adorn the fountains and terraces and depict hunting scenes, battles, and religious themes. The palace is tricky to reach by public transport, but a taxi from Jardim Zoológico metro stop, about a mile away, will be quick and inexpensive.
