O Palácio Fronteira é um dos mais belos monumentos lisboetas do século XVII. É uma antiga Quinta de Recreio que ainda se preserva de forma muito próxima do seu desenho original. Contém a maior coleção de azulejos no seu local de origem, preservada até hoje. É Monumento Nacional, funciona como museu, e ainda é habitado pelos descendentes do 1º Marquês de Fronteira, que mandou edificar o corpo principal da casa. Esse é um dos encantos desse espaço, que o torna vivo, o humaniza e lhe confere a sua atmosfera tão especial.
O local oficial de BOOKCROSSING fica do lado esquerdo do portão, junto à máquina de vending. Encontra-se aberto das 10h30 às 13h00 e das 14h00 às 17h30.


The Fronteira palace is one of the most beautiful seventeenth-century monuments in Lisbon. It holds the largest collection of seventeenth-century “azulejos” (Portuguese tiles) preserved in situ. It was built around 1670 and was used as a second residence by the Mascarenhas family before the Lisbon earthquake. The family moved to Benfica in 1755, after their main downtown residence was destroyed in the disaster.
The palace is an ancient manor house preserved in a form very close to its original design. It is a national monument, and it is also the home of the descendants of the first Marquis of Fronteira, who ordered the construction of the palace. This is one of the many charms of the place, giving it a human touch and contributing to its special atmosphere.
When you enter the Palace's gate the OFFICIAL BOOKCROSSING ZONE is on the left, close to the vending machine. It is open from 10,30am to 13.00 and from 14,00 to 17,30
