Conjunto do Palácio das Necessidades

Located at the Alcântara centre, it was one of the rare constructions that stood the earthquake of 1755. The palace has beautiful gardens, where you may enjoy a vast collection of exotic plants. Right in front of this building there is a fountain. It was a royal residence until the beginning of the XX century (almost all the Portuguese kings lived here), when the monarchy was abolished in Portugal. In 1910, the palace saw its precious art collections divided by several museums.
