60 Rare Historical Photos That You Probably Haven't Seen Before
One of the most famous abandoned buildings in Portugal is an abandoned palace built during the 19th century and abandoned in 1980s.
This, my friends, is Palacio Silva Amado in Lisbon. It was built in the 1800s and was once known for it's highly-decorated interiors and panels of tiles. Now-a-days, it's very much abandoned. In 1928, Palacio Silva Amado was bought by the Portuguese state - and this once beautiful building became largely defaced and it was never renovated; left to rot. It was purchased by a real estate company in the 2000s - with the plan of partial demolition of this historic landmark - converting the rest into apartment units. But it has still yet to happen. Squatters once took over the palace for a few days - but were quickly kicked out by the police.
