Aga Khan debuts new headquarters in Lisbon

Aga Khan escolheu Lisboa e o Palacete Mendonça para ser o centro da sua atividade internacional


Excerpt translated via Google:

More than 100 years after its construction, the Mendonça Palace in Lisbon, debuts this week as the epicenter of the vast universe of Imam Aga Khan IV.

At the dawn of the twentieth century, the Palacete Mendonça was one of the richest houses in Lisbon. It was conceived by the architect Ventura Terra in 1901 who realized a dream of Henrique Mendonça (1864-1842).

The spiritual leader of a community of more than 15 million Shia Muslims, including 15,000 in Portugal, largely from Mozambique, has a foundation that invests, stimulates and supports many projects in various societies in the four corners of the world, with relevance for Portugal. He has decided to make its world headquarters in Lisbon.
