The write-ups on this place glowed, so I was keen to visit. After having done so, I was a bit disappointed. It is relatively expensive (7 Euros) for a half-hour tour, with commentaries in Portuguese and (fairly limited) English. Not being able to take photos was another and significant negative.
My highlight was the last room visited, the Arabian Hall, which was truly gob-smacking. And it is all painted plaster (as I understand). The central courtyard - which I think might be open to the public, anyway - also makes a lasting impression.
