LISBON CITY MUSEUM
The compelling City Museum tells the story of Lisbon's long history through
prehistoric, Roman, Visigothic, Moorish, and medieval remains. It is
located in the 18th century Pimenta Palace, built as a gift for King João
Highlights include an enormous model of pre-earthquake Lisbon, maps and prints from before and after the quake (including a 17th-century painting showing Comercio Square before it was remodeled), and tile panels of city scenes. Also interesting are engravings of the Inquisition and of Catherine of Bragança departing Lisbon to marry England's Charles II.
There is also a lovely courtyard with peacocks wandering around.
Get FREE admission to the museum and ride Lisbon's metro, buses, and trams for FREE with the Lisboa Card.
