  • Lovely Palace, with rich historical landmarks!But to visit inside the palace you will have to get a paid(8€) guided tour, which is offered in different languages, for only half an hour. Most attractive part of the Palace is the Arabic room.They also have cafe and washrooms for tourists inside the palace

  • Was closed for a conference. Check opening before you go if this place is important to you. That said, what we could see through the doors and windows looked beautiful.

  • Let me put this way: it's wonderful, but it's too quick and a bit overpriced... BUT it's wonderful... worth a first visit to take your own conclusions.

  • Definitely worth the visit! This palace is in my opinion one of the highlights in Porto, make sure you find time to see it. Visiting is only possible with guides (in different languages) at specific hours - make sure you check the hours before, as you will not be able to simply pay and go in. The tour was a great short insight in Porto's trading/commerce history.

  • Don't miss the good wine tasting inside the building at a decent price. Though the modern ambient is quite untipical ****
