Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Lisbon / National Museum of Ancient Art
The vast collection of art housed at National Museum of Ancient Art includes paintings, sculptures, textiles, furniture, drawings, and other decorative arts created between the 15th and 19th centuries. Housed inside a lemon-colored palace from the 17th century, the museum remains one of city's major draws, presenting the evolution of European and Asian art through the ages. Pay special attention to the large panels depicting members of medieval Portuguese society paying respects to St. Vincent, the patron saint of Lisbon. This work, attributed to artist Nuno Goncalves, represents one of the first collective portraits in European art. Other museum highlights include masterpieces by Durer, Bosch, Cranach, Raphael, Tintoretto, and Velazquez.
