The Palacio is quite far from all areas of Lisbon in which I spent most of the time, i.e. the old town center.
However, the visit is worth the tram ticket and the time spent to reach the place, since the Palacio represents a very nice surprise. The Palacio at the time of my trip in Portugal could not be visited inside (I think because it is still privately owned and there were guests). It was thus possible to visit only the garden and the surroundings of the villa.
The magnificent garden and the fountains with light-blue colored tiles however are something that cannot be missed while staying in Lisbon. In my opinion these are comparable in terms of beauty to those of the Roman catholic popes villas in the surroundings of Rome.

Incorrect online informations about opening hours / guided visits.

The employee was starting the tour about 2 meters away from the closed ticket sale and unwilling to let us participate with a snobby and arrogant explanation. No fixed tour starts mentioned on the website and no mentioning of only one afternoon tour at an unannounced time.

Very disappointing service.

We had yet to visit the palace it self or its gardens; but we attended a one act comedy staged in the palace in its novre chamber.
The comedy A French in Paris by Louis de Boussy was wonderfully played; with a perfect vestuary and wonderfull actors fir a very limited audience so it was very cozy and personal.
Be aware that the play is in portugues.
This is the second time we attend a cultural event organized by Oeiras municipality and is well worthed.
It's a short drive from Lisbon so it is a bit off the path of the tourist routes.

You have to get a ticket to go inside (3€), but the gardens and the cellar are for free. The inside has been left empty, though there are very beautiful tiles (mismatched unfortunately) worth to see. The gardens are quite simple but pleasant.

Palácio do Marquês de Pombal is located in Oeiras is one of the most iconic attractions of the this town.
One can enjoy the magnificent gardens of the palace for a walk, relax play with the kids and just visit the palace built in the 18th century.
It is classified as National Monument since 1953.

The palace and surrounding area are must visit. Check for special programs, plays, concerts, re-enactments, light shows, definitely worth visiting.
This was the summer house of the Marquis de Pombal, the prime minister in the XVIII century who was responsible for the reconstruction plans for Lisbon, after the devastating effects of the 1755 earthquake and tsunami, that also destroyed this area of Oeiras. Lots of history and beautiful gardens.

Has a nice large garden with the powerful fountain that reminds you have a Gaudi structure from Barcelona. The palace interior is impressive with nice tiles and ceilings. Only shame is the lack of interior furniture but that is a result of historical circumstances. If you go on Sundays, the entrance is free. It would be great if the cellar across the garden was also open for visits but the Palace has only recently been opened to the public for visiting (before it was a public administration office) so hopefully in the future the interior will gain more content especially.

Make sure you go down the well and keep going till you come out of the bottom in the waterfalls. It is so magical. 90% of time in garden 10% in house. The house is beautiful too though. Don't drive there as it is a very narrow crowded road with two way traffic but only room for one car.

Very nice example of XVIII architecture.
Currently under renovation therefore not at its full splendor.
Gardens are very interesting however fountains are off waiting renovations so not at its full great look yet.
No charge to visit gardens is certainly a plus.
Can't wait to go back when fully renovated.
