In 1755 King Jose I was inside the palace where the Great Earthquake was felt only to a slight extent, and just like most buildings in this area, it wasn’t severely damaged. It still retains its richly furnished halls, carvings, tiles, and numerous works of art that may be visited on Saturdays only (10AM-5PM). The entrance to this Palace is watched over by two guards.

In front of the palace is a square with well-tended gardens and a statue of Afonso de Albuquerque, the Viceroy of India, standing atop a 20m-high Neo-Manueline pedestal in the center.

Museum of the Presidency (Museu de Presidência de República) is housed in the Belém Palace. The main attractions are the new technologies in use and an exhibition of objects and documents from modern Portuguese history. On the tour, the visitor will be able to get acquainted with the Presidents of the Portuguese Republic, through their personal objects and state gifts, the official portrait gallery, the national symbols and the insignia of the Portuguese Honorary Orders.
