Fronteira Palace, often called the Palace of the Marquises, occupies a rural location in Lisbon’s northwest suburb of Benfica.

Don´t miss the terraced walk and the beautiful fountains

The private property, open to visitors, was originally built as a hunting pavilion for João de Mascarenhas in 1640 and features splendid reception rooms decorated with tiles, panels, contemporary furniture and oil paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. Within the striking formal grounds there is a terraced walk, a topiary garden and statuary, with mythical figures and busts of Portuguese kings. There are also a number of fountains, decorated with some of the city’s most beautiful tiles depicting hunting, battle and religious scenes.
