This house is opposite Casa De Santa Maria. It's another little gem and we spent a very pleasant couple of hours looking around. The decor is beautiful and very much as it was in it's day.

On my week in Portugal, that was one of my favorite museums (and I visited quite a lot them). That's really nice villa, excellently renovated. It's reasonably sized, so it's big enough to; and on same time, you can pay attention to details. Highly recommend!

Very pretty. Felt followed around a little bit by staff - Also the top floor was cordoned off when we were there. Good value at $3 and a good thing for a rainy day.

This house is exquisite and really gives you a sense of the history, art and culture of Portugal. The building is beautiful and each room and its contents teaches you something about a period in Portuguese history. Definitely was worth it.

and do not let that put you off. People appreciate something they have to pay for. Loads of paintings with 19th but mainly 20th century significance, and curious decorative art. The archaeological stuff I came to see was not available on this visit, but I...More

Hi, it is closed on Mondays and free on one day of the week but I can't remember which day. There is a sign outside the door which tells you. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
