Worst museum ever! Paid 8 euros for nothing! Hate it! I wouldn’t advice it to anyone! Just a couple of insignificant pictures and old things!

There is really not that much to see other than the tiles in the main area. They are beautiful and although the place is overpriced for what you get - I would still pay to see the tiles.

This is a fine museum that offers the visitor some very nice displays providing insight into the lives of the Dukes and Duchesses of Cadaval. I found many of the displays to be well presented and not overwhelming. This museum might not suit everyone's tastes,...More

Thank you very much for your very kind message. Not easy nowadays to own and maintain such a place, so we are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit!

Beautiful architecture and furnitures. Very pleasant place to visit. It doesn't take too much time, about 30 minutes is enough and there is a ticket to pay.

The mansion and architecture are beautiful, the site is lovely with great views, but the permanent collection of stuff is forgettable. Stroll through, and you might be all by yourself!
