Enjoy the ancient history of Portugal but be aware about prices for visiting and shopping souvenirs, especially outside the monument. If you are expecting for reconstruction of memories, like at British Castles just forget it. You will see the building and the employees don't look to much pleasant.

As it is rebuilt and as the tapestries are copies, the main interest is in the lay out, the architecture and the chimney (39 I think) But the atmosphere is not there. But yes, it is nice.

It is like a new building. It kept in a very good shape. Actually only in the 15. century were used as a palace. In the 20. century comletely renovated. There is a fine collection of 17.- 18. century furniture, carpets, seramics, armour, wall carpets as well.

There was a lot to see in this well preserved building with many artefacts which were extensively explained in the hand held guide in English. The guide cost a few euros but was well worth it to understand the displays.

This is a must-see place in Guimaraes! The Palace itself is very nice, but it is also beautifully decorated. In each room they provide Information about the furniture, pictures etc. to be seen. Really worthwhile!

Very interesting historic building with many antique items of furniture and tapestries. Try to get there early or late to avoid the coach parties.
