“The Mafra National Palace is one of the most impressive buildings in the area, and a must-see for those that love History. Built by order of King João V, it consists of a Royal Palace, a basilica, a convent and a game reserve. Highlights include 2 carillons with 98 bells – the largest of its time. The Basilica’s 6 organs are pieces of unique heritage worldwide. The Royal Palace also boasts a large library thought to be one of the most beautiful in the world. ”

Botanical Garden
“The only tapada (hunting grounds) open to the public, with 1187 hectares of woods, it has several species of animals. The Garden of Cerco surrounds the building (with an area of 8 ha) and functions as a transition element between the monument and the Tapada of Mafra. A special note goes to the central tank, the "nora" and the small lakes.”

Establishment
“The Centre is not a zoo but a sanctuary for wolves that are unable to live in the wild any longer. The animals are not at the centre as exhibits and it is sometimes difficult to observe them, especially on hot days. Since the welfare of the wolves is the main concern of the centre, there are some conditions and restrictions that apply when visiting us. To ensure minimum disturbance to the wolves, the number of visitors is also controlled.”

Museum
“When we visit this monument we feel it is a different experience. Different because the singularities that can be experienced here have no parallel elsewhere: an eighteenth-century Hospital , two monumental Carillons also of the eighteenth century, an unique set of Six Tubular Organs in the Basilica and one Library considered, by many, wone of the most beautiful historical one's in the world, form this Heritage which, in its genesis, is a Franciscan Convent, a King's Palace and a Queen's Palace, a Library, a Basilica and a Tapada (Hunting Park).”
