View across palace gardens towards hills in the distance. A path, at the centre of the image, leads towards a domed, circular glasshouse and curves downhill towards the left. A man is sitting on the step of the portico to the building. The Palace of Necessidades sits in Largo do Rilvas, a square in Lisbon, and was originally built as a convent by King John V (1689-1750), replacing a small devotional chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Needs. During the reign of Maria II of Portugal (1819-53), the site became a royal palace and continued to be the residence of the monarchs of the Braganza dynasty, apart from Luís I of Portugal (1838-89), until the dissolution of the Portuguese monarchy in 1910.
