Not in the center of Lisbon but if you have a time it's a gem to discover. A 17th-18th century palace from a large aristocratic family, beautifully preserved. It is a private house where the residents still live so you can only visit part of the house. In order for the interaction between residents and guests to be harmonious, all visits to the interior of the building are guided . At specific times, the guided tours are in specific languages: English, Portuguese or French.There could be more visiting rooms in the palace, but the ones that are accessible are impressive. To the gardens we can go without a guide.A wonderful garden that is worth the journey in itself. Amazing azulejos, absolutely impressive and breathtaking. Beautiful facility, really worth visiting. I definitely recommend it. Photos cannot be taken inside the palace.

We arrived early for our morning tour at 930am and bought tickets and walked around the palace. When i say palace, it is actually the gardens that you can visit. The rest of the palace is only on the guided tour and you can only see 3 rooms. The guide also acted and behaved like it was a waste of his time to be there with no eye contact with any guests and was very routine about it all. It was all a rush and he went off in a hurry too. I enjoyed the gardens very much - if you come, dont pay for the guided tour.

Amazing place to experience the history of Lisbon. A fantastic display of tiles and mosaics in the "blue garden" disappointed that only a vending machine for refreshments.

These gardens and palace are a sight to behold and well worth a visit. You may even interact with the family who still use the residence and are very gracious about visitors. The location also is convenient and it's not a trek to get here.
