... There is also an old Basilica where Mass was being said today so we couldn't get inside and at the other end there is the new Basilica.

When Portugal became a Republic in 1910 the Palace became a museum but remains just as it was left when the Royal Family lived there. It was incredible to see their china, silver, furnishings, clothing and to imagine their lives in this place so long ago. The King was an artist, and his watercolours ...
