This whole marble palace, which belong to the Bragança royal family for more than 400 years, 200 of them before they assumed the Portugal Monarchy. The visit is only on a guided basis, several times a day and it has some surprises. The curators tried to preserve the place so it has no artificial lighting, which means than you see what the natural light from open windows allows you. The rooms from the last monarchs (from the beginning of the 20th century) were kept exactly as they were left, which means no furniture brought from other castles, as you may expect in so many other palaces. It is really a jewel a little bit hidden from the main turistic path is Portugal.
