Has a nice large garden with the powerful fountain that reminds you have a Gaudi structure from Barcelona. The palace interior is impressive with nice tiles and ceilings. Only shame is the lack of interior furniture but that is a result of historical circumstances. If you go on Sundays, the entrance is free. It would be great if the cellar across the garden was also open for visits but the Palace has only recently been opened to the public for visiting (before it was a public administration office) so hopefully in the future the interior will gain more content especially.

Make sure you go down the well and keep going till you come out of the bottom in the waterfalls. It is so magical. 90% of time in garden 10% in house. The house is beautiful too though. Don't drive there as it is a very narrow crowded road with two way traffic but only room for one car.

Nice day trip, low cost admission (3euros) and beautiful tile work in every room. The ceilings are also noteworthy. The palace has only be open to the public for a year. It is empty inside with no furniture in the rooms. The gardens are very nice and obviously being improved daily. it is quiet and the guides inside the palace (tours are self-guided) are very willing to answer any questions. At the end of the tour, there is a small café where you can get coffee and pastries. Worth a look. Also, there is a dining hall where you can get a meal for a very good price.

Big garden lying next to the Palace with some smaller functional buildings from those times. I saw an eucalyptus tree for the first time in my life there.

Incorrect online informations about opening hours / guided visits.

The employee was starting the tour about 2 meters away from the closed ticket sale and unwilling to let us participate with a snobby and arrogant explanation. No fixed tour starts mentioned on the website and no mentioning of only one afternoon tour at an unannounced time.

Very disappointing service.

We had yet to visit the palace it self or its gardens; but we attended a one act comedy staged in the palace in its novre chamber.
The comedy A French in Paris by Louis de Boussy was wonderfully played; with a perfect vestuary and wonderfull actors fir a very limited audience so it was very cozy and personal.
Be aware that the play is in portugues.
This is the second time we attend a cultural event organized by Oeiras municipality and is well worthed.
It's a short drive from Lisbon so it is a bit off the path of the tourist routes.

You have to get a ticket to go inside (3€), but the gardens and the cellar are for free. The inside has been left empty, though there are very beautiful tiles (mismatched unfortunately) worth to see. The gardens are quite simple but pleasant.

The palace and surrounding area are must visit. Check for special programs, plays, concerts, re-enactments, light shows, definitely worth visiting.
This was the summer house of the Marquis de Pombal, the prime minister in the XVIII century who was responsible for the reconstruction plans for Lisbon, after the devastating effects of the 1755 earthquake and tsunami, that also destroyed this area of Oeiras. Lots of history and beautiful gardens.

We found this palace quite by accident - we saw a signboard while driving on the freeway and decided to go. A treat it was indeed! Beautiful from the outside with pink walls and tiles. The house was sadly closed for a school trip (so best to call in advance to check). So we wondered the lovely grounds with the palace as a backdrop. We looked in the windows, but all the rooms had no furniture. You won't need long here, but it is well worth a quick stop and some photos.
