Unfortunately the museum was closed when we were there; however, it was worth the visit just to see the exterior of this magnificent house and its gorgeous location. It is a mansion built in 1900 by Jorge O'Neill, complete with turrets and whimsical architecture - very castle like. The house later became owned by Count Manuel de Castro Guimaraes who... 更多
This is a lovely small museum if you're in the area well worth a visit. We were lucky on the day we visited that there were choral rehearsals taking place for a concert and the music really added to the ambience as we wandered around. It's a beautiful looking building with some interesting exhibits and explanations in english as well... 更多
What a beautiful museum. Very relaxed visit: allowed to wander around at leisure taking photos. Beautiful furniture, artefacts and paintings. Mosaic work was superb.
This is one of the best house museums I have been it. The house is just magnificent and the artifacts are beautifully displayed. The house itself is typical Portuguese style with beautiful tiling. There are some wonderful paintings, magnificent furniture and truly amazing sculptures on display. The house is situated in a large park complete with hens and peacocks. In... 更多
This museum is at the edge of the park and is free to visit. It is full of artifacts from the various owners including some lovely artwork. The architecture itself is worth the visit and on a rainy or very hot day this is a well worth your time if you enjoy looking into the past lives of other people.
The house and surrounding grounds are not to be missed if you have time in Cascais. It was the residence of a nobleman and the architecture, art and history are remarkable. The grounds are used by people of all ages with children playing on equipment and an older crowd engrossed in numerous games of bocce on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.... 更多
This quiet beauty of this museum, which is really the home overlooking the water of Portuguese nobility, is a very special place. The twists and turns of the home, with none of the guards or security that you would find in a comparable museum/home in the US, the access, the beauty of the presentation were all breathtaking. A remarkable place.
The beauty, charm and detail of this museum, formerly a private residence, are not to be missed! The home was built in a way to bring the ocean to it, giving it a private beach.
At the end of the 19th century beginning of the 20th century the Portuguese royal family used to spend September in the seaside resort Cascais (about 25 km western from Lisbon); to be next to the kings, the richest and noblest Portuguese families built there their summer residences/palaces which would open only during September. Castro de Guimarães palace is one... 更多
I have visited this place often and normally have a wander about - but this visit was different. I was taking an old friend to visit, so this visit was not a ´pass the time´ visit but one where I had the time to stop and marvel at the history contained therein. The museum is well worth a visit to... 更多
