    Very beautiful place, be sure to visit. Metro walk 10-15 min on green line drawn on the sidewalk and would lead to the door of the Palace, very convenient and easy.

    I had read the book of Pascal Quignard devoted to this Palace and was afraid to be disappointed! It was nothing! The Palace and its gardens are beautiful especially the great Gallery! That this is reflected in a large basin of water where swim huge carp and rare black swans. Although located on the edge of the city gives an impression of exceptional quietness. The ajuleros are beautiful as well as the many statues of marble attributed to Mignard. There are few people and there is a car park shaded front in which we could easily find a place. It is without doubt a must in Lisbon for anyone interested in the history of art at the gardens and architecture. We highly recommend this tour! The garden tour begins at 9:30 and the Palace at 10:30.

    The property is located just outside, is but easy to reach with tram. Guided tours in English and French. Despite significant restoration jam recognizable transformation into a foundation and entrance fee. Worth a visit nonetheless, if you even want to see what has allowed himself the nobility from the great earthquake (is as the only Palace of spared). Photographing inside banned, what is not very bright, because there are enough photos of the rooms on the Internet.

  • The opening hours listed both here and on their website are wrong. I arrived at 15.30 and was told the Palace was closed. I wouldn't have minded if it were in the centre of Lisbon, but to trek for half an hour all the way out here to find the place closed was terrible.
  • Don't miss this charming little castle. 10min ride with a cab from city center and a feel for country side calmness and freshness. Lovely.
  • Although google timing state this place is open from 11 AM - 1 PM, we were turned away at 12:35 PM. When we explained to the gentlemen in ticketing that google timing say 1 PM, and we travelled very very far to visit on our last day in Lisbon, he SHRUGGED at us and said timing is on the website. We tried to explain that Google timing is the business' responsibility and he then said that they do not have a google (somebody claimed this business for it to show up and set their hours) and then proceeded to say he has repeatedly tried to set the hours through google but it doesn't work. I don't think I've ever met a less sympathetic person. He then said we could pay full ticket price for the garden but we would have only half hour. What a complete waste of time & effort, this turned out to be. Extremely disappointed. Would give a 0 star if I could.
  • I have been to many Palaces in Portugal This one is very unique because of two reasons First , it is private. With that , the owner has not done any renovations from the 18th century on the parts open to public and therefore you can see what is left from that time Second, the tiles.
  • Went to a wedding there, impressive location! Marvelous, a true historic gem

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
