Quinta da Bacalhoa

Gardenvisit Editorial

A classic renaissance garden with a Portuguese flavour. The son of Afonso de Albuquerque, who had been a great mariner and viceroy of India, also liked travelling. He journeyed to Italy, became a connoisseur of Italian art and admired their gardens. This inspired him to make a villa on a peninsula south of Lisbon. It has logias and patios for outdoor living and philosophical discourse. A great tank garden is flanked by a hall with three pavilions and decorated with glazed tiles (azulejo) and terracotta busts.
