We ask that you hire a knowledgeable guide in Mafra when arranging an excursion in Mafra on your trek.  The Mafra National Palace is a monumental palace-monastery and its massive complex is among the most lavish Baroque buildings in Portugal.   The palace is one of the largest buildings built in Europe during the 18th century.  

It was built in a symmetric fashion and continues lengthwise through the central frontage up until two main towers. The structures of the convent are located behind the main portico. The building contains a major library consisting of approximately 40,000 rare books.  The church, created out of white marble, is positioned in the middle of the main facade.  The two church towers have two doorbells that have 92 church bells in total.  The towers are linked by two rows of Corinthian posts.  

The church is built in the shape of a Latin cross and the palace is home to the monastery.   The stunning library that is located at the back of the second floor is undoubtedly the highpoint of this palace.  Your private guide in Mafra can easily lead the way to this remarkable landmark.  A tour in Mafra will ensure warm memories for guests.
