Your Secret place in Lisbon is...

Palace of the Marquises of Fronteira

The Palace of the Marquises of Fronteira in Lisbon (Palácio Marquês De Fronteira) is one of the best kept secrets in the city. Little known in general and less visited by tourists, this 17th century palace is nevertheless one of the most impressive buildings in the Portuguese capital, behind whose facade are hidden gardens full of tiles, marine elements and mythological figures worthy of a fantastic tale.

Nestled in the Monsanto Forest Park (perhaps its location is the reason why it receives few visitors), the Fronteira Palace was, originally, the summer residence of the family of the first Marquis of Fronteira.

In general, the architecture and design of the entire palace complex is in the Italian Renaissance style (with some Baroque elements), and hence the importance of the garden that surrounds the estate, where getting lost is a real pleasure that will delight anyone. photography lovers.
