The pialace, as well along with most o the ceety o Lisbon, wis destroyed in the 1755 Lisbon yirdquauk. After the yirdquauk, the reigning monarch, King José I, suffered frae claustrophobia an chose tae live the rest o his life in a group o pavilions in the hills o Ajuda, an thus the palace wis niver rebuilt.
