Nice to spend an hour or two and take some pictures. Not a have-to-go place, but a nice-to-know. It's a spot to hang out a little.

Very pretty baroque garden, well taken care of. Shows well the separation of clergy from the people. Not sure if it is worth 2 euros.

A must visit when in Branco. Amazing gardens and entry cheap at 2€. A lot of Work must be put in to maintain this amazing garden that the bishop used to wander in to get away from the crowds.

One of the best kept secrets in the heart of Portugal. One of, if not the best example of a baroque garden in all Portugal. Most definitely worth a visit.
