Museu de Artes Decorativas

Recommended
Situated in the former palace of the Counts of Azurara (17C), the museum tells the story of everyday life in Lisbon in the 17 and 18C through a series of small, intimate rooms, decorated with azulejos and frescoes. The rooms have Portuguese and Indo-Portuguese furnishings and house collections of silver, Chinese porcelain and several tapestries from the 16 and 18C. Level 3 contains a temporary exhibition room and a café with a welcoming patio.
