Geocache Description:


O Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, está localizado em Lisboa, Portugal. O museu está instalado num palácio do século XVII construído para os condes de Alvor. Este edifício é também chamado de PALÁCIO de ALVOR-POMBAL.

Em 1770, o marquês de Pombal adquiriu-o ficando na posse da sua família por mais de um século.

Inaugurado em 1884, o museu também é conhecido por Museu das Janelas Verdes, pois é essa a cor das suas janelas. Em 1940 foi construído um anexo, que inclui a fachada principal. Este ocupou o lugar do Convento Carmelita de Santo Alberto, destruído pelo terramoto de 1755. A única coisa que resistiu foi a capela, agora integrada no museu.
