You can only go into the house if you are on a guided tour and they don’t run at the same times every day so it’s best to pre book. Unfortunately when we tried to call them the day before no one answered the phone....More

It’s a beautiful palace, great furniture, paintings. The gardens are magnificent. But where was the Mateus Rose ? I was looking to recall the drink of my adolescences and they don’t make it there any more ! What a let down !
