The former Barão de Quintela palace now provides gastronomic delights over roughly 1,000 sq. m. Visitors can dine or snack in an ambience of decorated ceilings, murals, stained glass windows and grand marble staircases – reflecting the fact that this 18th-century palace was once home to prominent figures of the Portuguese aristocracy and served as a residence for General Junot during the French invasion in the Napoleonic wars. The new intervention added new flooring which conceals all the infrastructures, leaving the magnificent walls and ceilings untouched. Solid and effective, the intervention is also reversible in the sense that the palace can be returned to its original form.
