This is a spectacular monument that should be on any visitor’s list. We practically skipped doing so due to the mandatory guided tour. Nowhere did I read that the reason one cannot wanders on their own is because the building still serves as a place of work. Employees have important documents on their desks that should not be seen by wandering tourists. Our guide was lovely, witty, and informative. The tour is offered in four languages and the price for the visit and the tour is €10. The Palace is spectacular all around, but the Arab Room steals the cake. Inspired by El Palacio del Alhambra in Granada, Spain the room is beyond mesmerizing. A highly recommended visit.
This tour was our first to take in on our arrival in Porto. The guides at the Palacio are very informative. Although its open all day until 6:30 pm, be aware and allow yourself time to join if your tour is to be given in a specific language as they begin every 30 mins and if you miss it you have to wait.
Manuel was a fabulous guide, so friendly and knowledgeable. Toured all around the area and he waved and spoke to most of the locals. I would highly recommend this tour, it was a fun way to see the city.
Visita que sorprende gratamente, con detalles muy interesantes y fáciles de entender. La guía en español super maja. El lugar es uno de los puntos imprescindibles en la estadía en la ciudad.
It is a gorgeous building, it shows a lot about the city and country’s history from the 19th century.
