History & Location

Built in 1671, this place was initially intended as a hunting pavilion for the 1st Marquis of Fronteira. He was named Dom João de Mascarenhas, and it is to him that we owe this magnificent edifice. The palace was originally a family house attached to a chapel. After an earthquake destroyed the main family house, it was transformed into the Marques of Fronteira Family House in 1755. Today, it is the current residence of the Marquis of Fronteira, and the chapel is the oldest part of this palace. The Palace of the Marquesses of Fronteira is located near the Monsanto Forest Park. It is a rural area, easily accessible by private taxi from central Lisbon and couples love it here.

You’ll Love the Portuguese Blue Tiles

Also known as azulejos, these forms of painted tin-glazed ceramic tile work are an ornamental art form, but also had a specific functional capacity like temperature control in homes. These tiles had an early Arab influence, and you will find them all around the palace but specifically in the Hall of Battles. Contact us at  to book this venue and plan your event.
