Biblioteca Joanina

XVIII century work with a magnificent baroque portal standing out. The front’s simplicity opposes to the decorative abundance inside, where the ceilings painted by the Lisbon artists António Simões and Vicente Nunes are worthy of note, as a well as a huge painting portraying D. João V, by Domenico Duprá.
