Very beautifully restored 15th century palace has several large rooms with period pieces (furniture, paintings, tapestry, ceramics, weapons) and very good descriptions of what each room contains. We recommend this palace to anyone visiting Guimaraes.

Prepare to visit this palace! It’s absolutely stunning with real 15 century furniture and vases. Comfortable shoes are in order. Combo with the castle for 6 euros. It’s a must when in Guimaraes.

The venue was a little crowded and getting in was a bit awkward, access is through a smallish door with the queue waiting outside. Once past the ticket counter, it turned out to be a worthwhile visit. The big halls, all the items of times...More

Our visit was spoilt by the crowds that were there at the weekend. The building was interesting but I'm sure we would have enjoyed it more if it had been quieter.
