Housed in a sunny, yellow 17th century palace, Lisbon’s Museu de Arte Antiga is home to Portugal’s brightest collection of European paintings, many created by Portuguese painters.
You will also find glorious gilded items from the Palácio Alvor, ecclesiastical treasures, and fine tapestries. Highlights include the St. Vincent panels from the monastery of St. Vincente de Fora, and Hieronymus Bosch’s Temptation of St. Anthony triptych, with its psychedelic scenes of bizarre critters and fanciful debauchery.
