This really is a must-do on your visit to Lisbon, a very impressive and imposing structure with a fascinating history. But you probably won't spend very long here.

The Ajuda Palace was refreshingly calm and uncrowded compared to all the major tourist spots in town. The rooms and exhibits are beautiful! Each room also has laminated guide sheets in many different languages explaining the use of each space, some historical anecdotes, photos from...More

This really is a hidden gem. It doesn't look like much from the outside but it's beautiful inside and very well presented. There was hardly anyone visiting, which meant being able to go through the palace with ease. I don't understand how no one seems...More

Instead of standing in line at Jeronimo Monastery for 2-3 hours just to buy a ticket, go to Ajuda Palace instead. There is no wait and the palace is beautiful. It was the last Portuguese monarch’s home. Very well appointed and no crowds!

This place deserves the top reviews and is well worth seeking out. Much quieter and cheaper than other historic sights in Lisbon, it cost 10 euros for a family of 4. Very much furnished in an exuberant and glitzy style, it is a bit like...More

We strolled through the palace. Interesting to get a glimpse of past royal lifestyles. On our way back to our hotel we came across a street vendor that sold the absolute best churro we have ever had. Travel down the city streets toward the water...More

We saw the exterior of one wing of the palace under scaffolding as we approached but couldn't have been more pleased with what we saw on the tour through. Although the tour only included a small part of the palace , the interior is delightful....More

We had not had a chance to visit the palace on our first trip to Lisbon, So we were pleased to have gone this time. We took the 760 bus from downtown for less that two Euro. There are some impressive rooms on the ground...More
