Palaces, Évora: 14 reviews and 30 photos
Started in 1483, the king's palace, for long the best house in Portugal, was ruined and abandoned.
In the 19th century the architect Jose Cinatti decided to decorate the garden with fake ruins, that mixed with the real ones.
In 1943 the only remaining part of the Palace was reconstructed, but with great differences from the original, however, the whole - buildings and garden - do deserve a visit.
