Palacio Foz Tours

An ornate, Baroque palace located in the heart of Lisbon, the Palacio Foz was originally built in the 18th century as the home of the Count of Castelo Melhor. In the 1800s, it was purchased by the Marquis of Foz, who decorated the palace’s interior in the extravagant style we can still see today.

The Basics
The palace interior is not regularly open to the public, but guided tours are offered every month. Most walking tours of Lisbon pass the palace and offer a chance to learn about its history. Visitors can join group tours, or opt for a private tour for a more personalized experience. The palace is also home to the Lisbon tourism center, which is open daily.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Palacio Foz is a must-visit for design and architecture enthusiasts.
  • Guests can make an appointment through the palace’s website for a private tour to explore its interiors.
  • The Hall of Mirrors and the basement, which was once a restaurant, are not to be missed.

How to Get There
The palace is located on the edge of the Restauradores Square in Lisbon’s city center. Visitors can take the Azul line to the Restauradores metro stop as well as city buses 207, 732, and 736 to the nearby Rossio Square. The Linha Sintra line also makes a stop at the Rossio train station adjacent to the palace.

When to Get There
The best time to visit Lisbon is during the spring and autumn months when the weather is pleasant and there are smaller crowds. Due to its central location, the palace is best avoided in the afternoon when it’s packed with visitors. During summer months, the palace offers classical music concerts in the public hall.

The Interior of Palacio Foz
The exquisite interiors of the palace are reminiscent of the French style, and feature a Versailles-style Hall of Mirrors and a grand marble staircase. There’s also a Paintings Room filled with works by artists such as Frans Snyders and Van Dyck. The design of the rooms themselves are worth a visit, including a dining room with three massive chandeliers straight from Venice.
