SOCIAL PROGRAM

WELCOME COCKTAIL-Tuesday 12 September 2023

maat1.jpg

The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) is located on the riverfront of Belém historic district in Lisbon, flanked by Av. Brasília and the railway that connects Cais do Sodré to Cascais.
The best way to get to MAAT is by public transport — bus, train or tram — which always involves a short walk over one of the two pedestrian bridges available in the area. The fastest route is through the passage that connects Rua da Junqueira, where the bus and tram stop Altinho (MAAT) is, directly to the roof of maat. This footbridge was designed by the architects AL_A (Amanda Levete Architects), the authors of the museum's new building.
Alternatives such as bicycle, scooter, or car, may also be options. Parking in the area is limited.

Located to the east of Lisbon’s Center, the Xabregas Palace is one of the biggest icons of Portuguese history.

Between the 15th and 19th centuries, Xabregas was an area known for recreational farms and large convents of Lisbon, which, due to its location next to the Tagus River, allowed a quick and comfortable journey to the city center as well as to the south and inside areas of the country.

 

In the 17th century, when it was owned by the Melo, the Monteiro-Mor of the Kingdom, this palace was the scene of several meetings of the conspirators who restored the Independence of Portugal in 1640.

In this imposing architectural ensemble of Mannerist taste, which largely withstood the earthquake of 1755, decorative arts stand out, such as tiles from the second half of the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century, and mural painting from the first and second half of the 19th century that make this palace a unique example of its kind.
