The palace it's self is a nice place. However the current exhibition by Joana Vasconcelos made this visit a four star. Open fron march to 25 August well worth a visit. The queues are very long, however we paid the extra €5 each for express. Well worth it. Joana flare for displays made with everyday items is amazing, a defenate wow factor for me. the palace its self is not unlike most of the local ones. Rich in colour, dark to protect from the sun, which is understandable. I enjoyed the visit. Not sure if I would have scored it four without the exhibition, maybe a 3.
