The azulejos are magnificent as are the gardens. The C17 Palace is the residence of the current Marquês da Fronteira. The first Marquês, D João de Mascarenhas, received his title from D Afonso VI for his loyalty to the house of Brangança in the War of Restoration. The largest room inside (the room of the battles) depicts scenes from the War of Restorartion and is now used for cultural events and was, until recently, used as a venue for Lisboetas to play bridge. There is a very good shop on site which sells reproductions of the azulejo panels.
