definitely worth a visit and 30 mins tour. amazing views of the river and the bridge. Mario was a very informative guide!
The staff is super friendly here and everything is interesting. The only reason I gave four stars is that the whole place has been open to public quite recently so there is a lot that's very new to the staff as well. So, there could be some improvements in regards with the information available, but otherwise, worth checking out. Particularly because you might accidentally see the bishop as well ;)
The carvings on the ceiling of the entrance, rooms, views... An amazing place! Tour was also very great and informative! Our guide did not only introduce the palace but also explained the art movements very briefly to make the works understandable. The last stop in this tour is the best Porto view I think!
The building only recently opened to the public. You need to take a guided tour of approximately 30 minutes. Very well restaurated mansion but the artworks inside are a bit mediocre.
Beautiful palace, worth the visit for the grand hall alone. It also features one of the best views of the Douro river in town.
Nice square from where nice views can also be enjoyed
