As we were staying outside of Lisbon in Cascais (highly recommended) we choose to visit just one attraction in the city during our holiday in Portugal last November and this was it.
We were not disappointed. What a wonderful building and an amazing collection of art. We only had an afternoon but still my mind was overwhelmed by the beauty on display in this dignified setting.
If your time is limited just visit the the famous Bosch - is both delightful and disturbing all at once. I really thought the collection of decorative art was incredible but my republican-minded partner thought of it was too ostentatious. There is something for everyone in this museum and afterwards you can get a delicious cake and some very good coffee in the little cafe downstairs
Very helpful and polite staff too.
