Situated within an 18th-century Manor House known as the Quinta do Sacramento or Quinta da Macieirinha, the Romantic Museum celebrates and dedicates its efforts to the subject of Romanticism.


Romantic Museum

The interior has a special allure with its beautifully decorated rooms full of paintings and antiques. The majority of which are open to the public. Of special note are the great drawing room, a small chapel and a billiards room. Acquired by the City Council in 1972, the museum showcases the ideas of romanticism in various mediums, from literature to film, from art to music, and not least the architecture of the mansion itself and the surrounding Crystal Palace Gardens (Jardins do Palacio de Cristal).

Carlos Alberto of Savoy, King of Sardinia and Prince of Piedmont, found refuge at this mansion following his abdication and defeat by the Imperial Austrian army. He spent the last year of his life at the Quinta do Sacramento in 1849 when he died from tuberculosis. Some of the rooms were tastefully and respectfully redecorated in his memory.
