Description: The Royal Palace and Convent of Mafra (Palácio e Convento de Mafra), is a popular tourist destination 40km northwest of Lisbon. Built in the baroque style in the XVIII century and reminescent of the Spanish palace-convent El Escorial, the Convento de Mafra has also inspired Portuguese Nobel Prize laureate José Saramago to write his novel Memorial do Convento. The palace was one of the residences of portuguese kings. Nearby (2km northwards) is the Tapada Nacional de Mafra, a wildlife and game reserve. Detailed information at
