Visit Mafra in 2024

Nestled just a short drive from Lisbon, Mafra is a testament to Portugal’s Baroque splendor. The town's centerpiece is the Palácio Nacional de Mafra, a colossal structure that comprises a palace, a basilica, and a convent. Commissioned by King João V in the early 18th century, this UNESCO World Heritage site is not just an architectural marvel but also a symbol of the king's aspiration to rival Europe's other great courts. Besides the palace's allure, Mafra boasts serene parks, traditional eateries, and close proximity to the Tapada Nacional de Mafra, a former royal hunting ground that now serves as a nature reserve.
Mafra's juxtaposition of regal grandiosity and quaint town charm creates a unique ambiance that transports visitors through time — from the opulence of royalty to the timeless rhythms of daily Portuguese life.
