Greater Lisbon, Azeitão – Portugal

Quinta da Bacalhôa

is considered to be one of the most beautiful Historical Monuments from the first half of the 15th century that still exists in Portugal. It is a former property of the Portuguese Royal House, located in the greater Lisbon, more precisely in the small village of Vila Fresca de Azeitão, approximately 30mins from Lisbon center.

Comprising the Quinta and the famous Palácio da Bacalhôa, also known as the Palácio dos Albuquerques, it is an artistic monument of the utmost importance to Portugal.

The architecture, decoration and gardens of the Palace have been influenced over the centuries by the different owners, inspired by their travels through Europe, Africa and the Orient, thus helping to transform it into a unique jewel.
