This extraordinary palace sits on the outskirts of Lisbon and has some of the country’s most beautiful tiles and gardens. Built as a hunting lodge for Joao de Mascarenhas in 1640, the Fronteira Palace became the family’s main residence after the great earthquake and fire in Lisbon in 1755. Today, it is possible to visit the interiors, which include some amazing tiles as well as furniture and paintings that have been in the family for 13 generations.
