Built in the 1660s by the first Marquis of Fronteira, Joao de Mascarenhas, the Palace of Fronteira encompasses all that is most quintessentially Portuguese.
This lavish book is devoted entirely to the art and architecture on display there, and the fascinating history that lies behind them. Despite its individual character Fronteira is, in many ways, one of the most representative of Portugal's country manors. This book is an inspiration both to students of the decorative arts and to those interested in Portugal's complex history during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Whether their interest is scholarly or general, The Palace and Gardens of Fronteira is sure to delight lovers of Portuguese art and culture, and lovers of art in general.
