"Ladies Gallery" Palaces Tip by solopes
Palaces, Évora: 14 reviews and 30 photos
Started in the 15th century, this palace grew to a big complex, occupying almost all the actual garden of S. Francisco. During the spanish kings it lost importance, and started decaying, mainly when most of its area was returned to the monks, in 1612. With the extinction of the religious orders in 1834 the state recovered some of the areas, and the other were demolished to build a market.
Nowadays, the only remains of the former palace are the ladies gallery, showing clearly the Manuelin style with Renaissance and Mudejar elements.
