This week’s theme was the Museum of the Presidency of the Republic in Belem.

Just like my article, the museum had two parts. A small exhibition, short of information and an incredible palace!

History and amusing anecdotes got mixed with lots of beauty!

I heard stories about the French invasion of Portugal and the assassination of President Sidonio.

I admired the Hercules fountain and the Golden Room!

And these are just a few examples of the great things I discovered around the museum.

Read everything about the exhibition and the history of the palace in Part 1. Explore the gardens and get amazed by the interior of Belem Palace in Part 2.

If you are in Lisbon join me on one of my next visits! Tuesday I will go the Museum of Aljube – Resistance and Freedom and the National Museum of Sport.

See you soon in a museum around Lisbon!
