Junqueira is an avenue in Lisbon, which connects Alcântara to Belém. It is a very old place name, with references that go back to the 13th century and Sítio da Junqueira. In the 18th century, after the earthquake of 1755, and throughout the 19th century, it became a very popular area among Lisbon's nobility. Several noble houses and other large-scale buildings were built, these survive until today and include this beautiful palace, with hints of charm and an inviting private garden within Lisbon. The Palace has four floors, serviced by an elevator, and at this moment each of the floors has a different function that goes from social, to private, to service areas.
