We visited this Casal in the afternoon. We spent almost two hours in this magnificent gardens. In the end we tasted a good white wine from the Casal. We highly recommend a visit. All your senses will be spoiled

The building is impressive and the gardens are nice but to appreciate this Casa you must do the tour. Our guide, Sonia, was really informative and shared her knowledge of this home. Every room is fully furnished, the library is gorgeous. Pay for the tour and you will learn something while helping to preserve this small part of Portugal’s heritage.

There are two prices, one for the casa and the gardens, and one just for the gardens. We opted for the gardens and boy were they beautiful!! You can also see the outside of the casa and walk down the middle.

We were transported to this interesting place from our cruise ship and were advised that we would not be visiting the palace itself as the cost of entry was high for the small amount of rooms that are on display. Whether or not this is the case, I have no idea, but we learned a bit about the history of the place from our guide (and the family that owns it has little to do with that much-loved rose wine of the same name) and we were able to roam freely around the gardens. In early May, this was hardly a riot of colour but the layout of the grounds and the various plantings were pleasing to look around in the lovely sunshine. I would be tempted to arrange a visit to look at the interior of the building if I happen to find myself in that area again.
