Le Palácio Fronteira (Palais Fronteira), est un édifice lisboète situé à Benfica et dont la construction a débuté probablement dans les années 1660. Initialement destiné à servir de pavillon de chasse à D. João de Mascarenhas, premier marquis de Fronteira, le bâtiment et ses jardins sont richement décorés, notamment par des azulejos, et constituent un exemple du style baroque portugais. Même si certains bâtiments élevés sont visibles de loin, le palais occupe un endroit discret en bordure du Parc forestier de Monsanto. Bien que le palais soit toujours occupé par le 12e marquis de Fronteira, certaines pièces, comme la bibliothèque, et les jardins, sont ouverts à la visite.
Nice gardens and azulejos, could use better opening times,as it's quite limiting, and maybe an cafe. The tour is nice for the story of the palace.
Palace of the Marquises of Fronteira. This one off the beaten path, located in the outskirts of Lisbon, just before a Monsanto wooded area. Well worth a time to visit. Palace is occupied by rightful residents, so verify open days. The public showings usually on Saturdays from 11am to 1pm.
Marvelous gardens, they worth the visit by themselves! I didn't see the palace inside, it was closed
Got here late in the afternoon, a very quiet and relaxing place to look over the city of Lisbon
First time I went there I was with my wife and we visited the full palace, for this first visit I would give 5 stars. Something changed however and now they only usually open the garden for visits and not the Palace, the garden is wonderful but not has wonderful as the Lisbon Zoo garden which is free to visit and for this reason I'll give 2 stars instead.
Gorgeous and romantic park that will allow your imagination to wander. Truly a secret garden
Very nice azulejos, so much better than those of "Museu do Azulejo".
Well worth a visit, but slightly run down, in the best possible way. Try to join the tour of the palace interior as it is good.
Beautiful palace! We had a wedding rehearsal dinner there, venue was amazing.
