The palace built by the grandfather of the famous (or infamous to some) Marquis of Pombal is now in semi-conserved state – structurally consolidated and more or less cleaned up of spurious additions, with nothing inside except for some lighting and a small cafeteria. The plan of the building is typically in the Portuguese Plain style, with Baroque decorations and details added afterwards, like the pedimented door and statues contemporary with Mafra.

Thanks to our friend Lucas Manarte for taking us here and lending his camera!
