Museums & Monuments

Museum of São Roque 

The story of this place starts in the beginning of the 16th century when King Manuel I ordered the construction of a small shrine to house a relic of Saint Roch, so that the saint would protect Lisbon from black plague.
In 1905, the Museum of the Treasure of the Chapel of Saint John the Baptist was created adjoining the church. Today, this museum is the Museum of São Roque, completely remodeled between 2006 and 2008, where one can get to know more about this rich collection.

Palace of Mafra

All in limestone and marble from this region (Pêro Pinheiro and Sintra), the building covers an area of almost four hectares (37.790 m2), including 1.200 rooms, more than 4.700 doors and windows, 156 stairways and 29 inner yards and courtyards. Such magnificence was only possible due to the Brazilian gold that poured into the country, allowing the King to carry out his patronage of the arts and the strengthening of royal authority.

National Shrine of Christ the King 

The idea to build the Monument to Christ-King comes up in 1934, when the late Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, His Eminence Manuel Gonçalves Cerejeira, is visiting Brazil. Traveling through Rio de Janeiro, he comes upon the impressing site of the Statue of Christ the Redeemer in Corcovado and immediately is born in his heart the desire to build something similar in front of Lisbon. So, in 1936, the idea to build the Monument to Christ-King was made known to the Apostolate of Prayer, which welcomed it with enthusiasm. In order to be National, the Monument needed the approval and cooperation of all the Portuguese Bishops, which is finally obtained and officially divulged in the Bishops’ Joint Pastoral Letter for Lent of 1937.
