This guide displays the rich and varied collection of the Museum of Lisbon and its five sites. From prehistory to the end of the 20th century, the book reveals the various layers of one of Europes oldest cities, highlighting structural themes in Lisbons history and also emblematic pieces in the museums collection: the Roman Theatre of Olisipo; the international character of the Franciscan Saint Anthony; the importance of Lisbon as a force behind the Discoveries; the model of the city before the earthquake of 1755; the legacy of a city which produced ceramics and azulejos (glazed wall tiles); the rationalism and illuminism of the Pombaline reconstruction of the city after 1755; and finally the Expo 98.
