If you are an art lover traveling through Lisbon, Portugal, Museu Calouste Gulbenkian is the perfect treat, no matter what your particular artistic tastes may be. Containing rare works of art from very diverse periods, this lesser known European marvel shelters what was once the property of the oil tycoon Calouste Gulbenkian and one of the world's greatest private art collections. From Egyptian, Roman, Greek and Islamic-Oriental art to Renaissance pieces and 18th and 19th-century French and English paintings, the museum is dedicated to celebrating visual arts such as sculpture, painting, decorative arts, and even the art of book and jewelry. Here you have the chance to see works of different masters such as Renoir, Monet, Manet, Rembrandt, Van Dyck and Rodin. The collection is completed by a splendid collection of jewels and glass by Rene Lalique.
