Museo Nacional de Arte Antiguo (Ancient Art National Museum)


This visit is worth it if only to contemplate the facade of this impressive XVII century Baroque palace located at Rua das Janelas Verdes, 9. The best, however, awaits inside. Its magnificent collection of paintings and decorative arts in Europe and Asia is one of the most beautiful in Portugal. From the age of discovery, its historical treasures includes the Custody of Bethlehem, a gift brought by the explorer Vasco de Gama in one of his expeditions around the world, or the delicate Japanese panels of the sixteenth century whereby the Japanese depicted the arrival of the Portuguese in their island. But the palace of the Counts of Alvor, is also an art gallery exhibiting works by Hieronymus Bosch (The Temptation of St. Anthony), Dürer (St. Jerome), Piero della Francesca (St. Augustine) and a series of canvases (Apostolate) from Zurbarán's workshop.
