"Ajuda Palace" Palácio Nacional da Ajuda Tip by SonOfLusus

Palácio Nacional da Ajuda, Lisbon: 6 reviews and 8 photos

Lisbon's Ajuda Palace surprised me for its small number of visitors. It is quite close to the city's main monuments in the Belem district, so I guess it just gets overlooked among so many great sites nearby, or people just become too tired to climb the steep hill the palace stands on. But its banquet hall and throne room for example, were quite impressive. Also of note was the number of interesting clocks throughout the rooms. Portugal's royal family lived here until the country became a republic in 1910.
