The Chavões Room owes its name to the set of tile panels, today preserved by the Museum, which ornamented it until the date when an intervention was made in order to ensure their integrity.
The tile panels date from the third quarter of the 17th century, with polychrome and figurative decorations from Quinta dos Chavões, in Cartaxo, property of the Counts of Unhão. Some of the panels from Chavões recount specific episodes from the various courts, as well as stories of the family who owned the Quinta, the Telles da Silveira, Counts of Unhão.
This is the room where the vast majority of temporary events and exhibitions are held.
Its connection to the courtyard and café makes it very pleasant and versatile.
