Quarter-General of the Military Government of Lisbon

Largo de S. Sebastião da Pedreira, Vilalva Palace

Occupied by a force of the Hunters Battalion 5

On April 25, 1974, the Headquarters of the Military Government of Lisbon was installed. Because it is the command post of the Units of the Military Region of Lisbon and a communications center of great importance, the operations plan of the Armed Forces Movement (MFA) anticipated its occupation by a force of the Battalion of Hunters 5, that arrived here at 03:30 that day, made up of about 100 soldiers commanded by Captain Bicho Beatriz. The barracks was confirmed to the MFA Command Post at 04:30, by Major José Fontão “CANADA was occupied without incident”.
