英語のガイドが宮殿について詳しく説明してくれて、大変よく理解できました。宮殿と教会をセットで見学しました。宮殿の中は写真を撮ることができません。周囲ではガイドの勧誘やお金をせびる子供たちがたくさんいました。 The English guide explained in detail about the palace and I understood very well. We visited the palace and the church in sets. You can not take pictures inside the palace. There were many children who solicit guides and led money in the surroundings.

Be prepared to remove your shoes! Fun to see the furnishings in the palace. Kids enjoyed the museum too although hold onto the youngsters!

For 100 mzn you have guided tour of palace. Half an hour in English or Portuguese as you choice. They tell the story and the palace is well conserved with all fornitures.

Definitely worth a visit, the guide provides explanations on each room. Hopefully authorities will keep taking care of the objects collection.

The former Governor's Palace is now a museum, displaying objects from mostly the early 20th century.

Excellent initiative by the Ministry of Culture to preserve and present the heritage. The ambiguous reality, though, makes it an interesting visit, although there could be more than some beds and furniture to the exposition.
