The Palácio Nacional da Ajuda, a national monument, was the official residence of the Portuguese royal family, on an ongoing basis, from the reign of D. Luís I (1861-1889) to the end of the Monarchy in 1910. Today it is a magnificent museum and the only visitable palace in Lisbon that still reliably preserves the layout and decoration of the rooms following the 19th century taste. This is true namely in the rooms of the monarchs and the throne room. Located on the top of the Ajuda hill, with stunning views over the Tagus River, the Palace houses important collections of decorative arts from the 18th and 19th centuries: jewelery, tapestry, furniture, glass and ceramics, as well as collections of paintings, engravings, sculpture and photography.
