We drove past and thought we would give it a try. A very interesting old house, 300 years old, with lots of rooms set out as they might have been all those years ago. Not good for 70 year olds with a walking aid, but...More

This place is a triumph of marketing over reality. Expensive reality too at 10 euros each. I couldn't work out what the place was trying to be. If this was meant to be an educational experience...and it has the potential to be one...then it failed...More

Had a stroll only outside, so can't judge the museum part. Not much to see,really. Some lonely farm animals, caged pigeons (plenty), nice plants and greenery and that's about it. For 10eur per person I expected to see more.

Very interesting how old-times rich portuguese family lived. The guides are very nice and know everything.

Interesting place to visit and receive experience about rich Portuguese family who created this place, house, businesses in the past. Beautiful museum/house with old style equipped rooms. A lot of animals, great views and café inside.

It was worth a visit for the tour of the house and the views. The animals seemed to be a bit of an afterthought and not in the best way. They could certainly do a lot more with the space they have.
