The whole Palacio is very nice, and the history of it is interesting, as well as the fact that there are presentations held there even today. But the Arabic room will blow your mind...

When you go here make sure you take the time to really look at all the features. It is an amazing Palace, but ensure that you take the tour to get the full history of the place.

Just in the center of Oporto, downtown to the river a very well decorated palace, merits a visit. The gold decoration and the style is fantastic.
