  • Beautiful place, filled with Portuguese history and culture. The caves are amazing and breath taking. The rooms in the Palace are beautiful and very classy. The kitchen was magnificent and you can even see the original cooking pots! The gardens were straight out from a fairy tail with all the beautiful flowers and trees in there. The price, even though it looks steep, it's not high at all if embrace the experience, and you have to have in consideration the maintenance of the place. Overall a very pleasant place for a visit or a romantic getaway.
  • Expansive grounds. Follow the signs to the initiation well up top...then work your way down the hill. Lovely place to just wander. The house was worth going in! Beautiful interiors.
