Set in a petite 17th-century palace, the Museu de Artes Decorativas creaks under the weight of treasures including blingy French silverware, priceless Qing vases and Indo-Chinese furniture, a collection amassed by a wealthy Portuguese banker from the age of 16. It’s worth a visit alone to admire the lavish apartments, embellished with baroque azulejos (hand-painted tiles), frescoes and chandeliers.

It's a particularly atmospheric spot for live fado on Wednesday at 6pm.
