Publication of this title has been cancelled. Publisher's description: The Royal Convent and Palace of Mafra is the most important baroque monument in Portugal. It was built in the early eighteenth century following a vow made by King Jo=o V of Portugal that he would build a convent if his wife gave him an heir. This vast palace that was eventually constructed is made from local limestone and marble and has 1200 rooms, its splendor possible due to the Brazilian gold that had poured into the country. It features one of the most important libraries of Enlightenment Europe, while the convent includes sculptures and paintings by great Italian and Portuguese masters. Among the later additions under the reign of King Jo=o VI was an ensemble of six organs for the Basilica. This great example of European baroque is explored in a new guidebook through new photography and a highly informative account.
