More beautiful than Palacio Real de Madrid

The palace seems to be even larger than the famous Royal Palace in Madrid. Not to mention that the entrance fee is just 5 Euros, and 2.5 E for students. The entrance at The Royal... read more

The palace seems to be even larger than the famous Royal Palace in Madrid. Not to mention that the entrance fee is just 5 Euros, and 2.5 E for students. The entrance at The Royal Palace is 10 Euros. We also enjoyed the fact that we could take pictures in comparison to Madrid Royal Palace. You can also visit Jardim... More

Beautiful building but unable to go inside. Can not tell you much because we could not go inside but the building was a woek of art.

I was staying opposite this Palace when in Lisbon and nearly didn't bother going to see. I was so pleased that I did. It is the most amazing Palace I have ever seen. The story is amazing and the charm of the place is truly magical. The staff placed around the Palace were so helpful and more than happy to... More

This Palace can easily match Windsor or Buckingham Palace by its size and it's luxurious interior. Two floors of amazing stately rooms with that 'wow!' effect makes it definitely well worth the visit. We couldn't understand why this national treasure seems to have been virtually ignored by the Portuguese / Lisbon Tourism industry. It's located not far from Jeronimos Monastery,... More

We booked the Belem Yellow Bus Tour and this is on the route having seen the queues for the monastry and Belem Tower we feared the worse but no one else got off the bus and their were no queues at all. As somebody pointed out before do not let the outside put you off a visit as the inside... More

From a far the palace looks impressive but when you're closer it's less monumental. But don't let these first impressions put you off. The interior is worth the visit. Some rooms have been nicely restored, others are still on the waiting list I guess. Nevertheless this is also charming. The throne room and the big dining room are impressive but... More

Not close to the center but you should include it in your visit. Go early to avoid queues. Great collection from Portuguese aristocracy!
