What an absolute prime location, overlooking the cityscape of Lisbon and over the Tegus and towns beyond, very nice. I was down at the Vasco de Gama monument and saw this beautiful building perched up on the hill, just jumped out up there, very impressive looking.

This palace is well worth a visit. Of particular interest to me were the room of porcelain furniture and the winter garden made of marble. The Queen's dining room was also spectacular and looks ready for guests to arrive.

Worth a visit and near the botanical gardens and other sights. Not so many tourists as in some of the other places.
