    I found it best to take 737 bus to avoid most of the uphill walk to the castle. I had prepurchaed ticket online so was able to walk right in. I liked it but only really enjoyed as I had purchase audio online through VoiceMap. That really gave me more of an understanding on what I was seeing.

    I have been to Lisbon a couple of times already so I have already seen most of the main sights. I was down in Belem to see the Tejo Power Plant museum and once done with that I walked over to check out the Belem tower and the Jerónimos Monastery both of which were absolutely slammed with tourists on this sunny spring day. Since I had seen both before I didn't feel like waiting in a line an hour so I looked for something nearby I hadn't seen before and saw this palace so I headed on over walking from the monastery. If you do this keep in mind that it is almost entirely up hill for the walk.

    Anyway I got the palace and basically had it almost to myself. I'd say there might have been about a dozen folks I saw while I was there not counting staff. The palace is interesting and I say that having been to a fair number of European palaces in my time. Each room had signage in English to explain the room function and give the background of various items of interest in the room. I have probably been to a dozen European palaces and this one by far was the least busy and yet still quite interesting. There is also the royal treasures collection next door which I wasn't aware of so missed it. All in all I thought it was worth going out of your way to to see it especially if you wanted to get away from the tourist hordes.

    Portugal was wonderful, the people, the sights, the food and our hotel.
    We stayed in Lisbon one week, travelled to Nazare, Porto and the Drouro River valley by train. The seafood was fabulous. The fruit in Portugal is the sweetest juiciest fruit we have ever tasted. The whole country is very clean. We never saw any trash or litter. There were flowers blooming everywhere, camellias, almond trees, large yellow trees I ve never seen before. The trains were fine too.

    It’s certainly a large and well guarded spread. Runs by the botanical gardens and frankly better than the gardens themselves.
