If you are in the vicinity, then absolutely stop by for a stroll in the gardens to see the peacocks. They are beautiful, and a nice stroll in the garden is quite peaceful. You can, however, skip the museum. Yes, there are images, paintings, and...More

Our favourite museum in this wonderful town bears a whiff of amore as do many royal edifices built for this girlfriend or someone of greater significance. It's a period charmer that tracks the development of this wonderful region via tiles, lithographs, manuscripts, paintings and models....More

For me the museum is not the most interessing part (historical museum of the story pf the city), i prefere the gardens, where you can find peacocks and another little garden with statues from bordalo pinheiro that is amazing

This isn't the top destination for tourists but it's quite a little gem off the beaten path. A very Portuguese eccentricity about the place - kids will love taking a stroll through the imaginative ceramic garden and walking among dozens and dozens of peacocks. The...More
