Palácio Fronteira

Fronteira e Alorna Foundation

Palácio Fronteira

Built in the 17th century and finished in the 18th century the Palácio Fronteira’s core building is a rectangle, initially with four towers, today there are still two towers remaining and they’re called Torrinhas, the other two are in ruins in the South and North facade. The terrace, or Art Gallery, ends with the base of the rectangular building as it builds its way to the Chapel, forming the South wall with an 135º angle. This particular architecture stands out in history for its perfectly dashing project, its tile coating and empowering statues, therefore making Palácio Fronteira one of the most magnificent buildings in Lisbon.

Travelling Cards

The most convenient way to travel with public transport is using a rechargeable card called “7colinas / Viva Viagem”, on which you can upload different types of tickets.

These cards were specially designed for less frequent customers, allowing the charging that best suits your needs.


Where to get and charge/recharge 

7 Colinas and Viva Viagem cards cost €0.50 and you may get them, charge or recharge your card on Carris or other transport operators’ points of sale.

Which charging options are available 

7 Colinas and Lisboa Viva cards can be charged with the following types of transport tickets:

  • Valid for Carris and Metro: 1 day ticket (24h) Carris/Metro Network
  • Valid for Carris, Metro and CP: 1 day ticket (24h) Carris/Metro/CP

We recommend to charge the Viva Viagem-card with the Zapping option: With this option, you upload a specific amount of money (min. 3€, max. 40€), allowing you to use all types of transports (bus, tram, urban train, ferries). When starting a new journey, you validate your card at the entrance of the respective type of transport, and the fare for one journey will be subtracted.
