In brief, other reviews written about the Palace accurately represent the experience. From the outside it looks neglected and poorly maintained but inside it is well cared for. The surprise for us though, having trudged up the hill on foot (don't do this if you plan to walk a further 10 Kms) was the cafeteria which was suggested when we... More

Just checked this out from outside. Guards standing outside were nice and the grounds are beautiful... Stay on the road toward center city and you will find a really lovely gift shop Original... artisanal jewellery and crafts

This palace is a must see! We were positively surprised when we got inside, from the outside it is hard to define one of the major sights (no tourist shops, lack of crowd, the exterior is not really polished). But! When you get inside you say 'wow'. Walking through the rooms you get an idea of how the royal family... More

This Palace is a gem. The interiors are superb and still unspoiled. The change of political system in 1910 did not affect this old Royal Palace. The ambiance is well preserved. Worth a visit.

We visited Ajuda Palace. Next day we went to Versailles Palace in Paris. Seems like all 4 adults in our family like Ajuda more. The price is very good and there were only few people in the whole palace.

Ajuda Palace is slightly off the beaten path in Belem, but it was my favorite Lisbon site. The palace sits almost as it did in the early 1900s when the royal family went into exile. Some of the furnishings were so unique -- I have never seen their like. In addition, there were many rooms open, and the last few... More

This palace has a ton of very cool things to look at. Unique and very original. We took our sweet time in here, spoke with the workers and learned a bunch of cool stuff. The furniture was wild and so much detail and workmanship. Worth the price for sure.

This is one of the highlights of our journey to Lisbon..we cannot recommend this palace enough.we where shock at the price charged for admission at being only 5euros for such a stunning palace. Don't let the outside of the palace put you off as when you are in the palace it's like a treasure trove of artefacts and furnishings that... More

A fascinating and interesting place. A bit OTT on the taste but well worth a visit. Easy to get to from Monastery. 729 bus at bottom of hill, just a few stops up. very quiet and peaceful. Excellent value for 5 Euros. A great place after the hussle and bussle of the monastery and tower. An excellent little cafe in... More

They were able to host over 150 people without any drama whatsoever. The food and drink selections were diverse and excellent. Well done
