Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This palace is spectacular seen from the outside, we were not able to see it from the inside
The Don Manuel Palace is, even today, one of the most beautiful buildings in Évora. This monument is inside the Public Garden of Évora (Jardim Público de Évora), in the tranquility of a green space with terraces and benches where you can contemplate it.
The entire building is characterized by a hybrid Alentejo style. It has strong peninsular Moorish influences and a typical late-Gothic and Manueline style decoration, even if you don't go inside it is possible to enjoy all these styles from outside
It is a good start to discover Evora, here I quote a Guru Walk that we pay to enjoy the visit

Lots of space in the garden, a café and this lovely Palace of King Manuel. A symbol of the important role of Evora during the monarchy. Of the magnificent palace building, only the hall known as Ladies´Gallery remains, built in mudejar-influenced late-gothic and renaissance style. Today cultural events are staged here.

Great setting, located in the Jardim Publico de Envora. Built as a convent in the 13th century than converted to a Royal Palace in the 14th century.

Unfortunately now closed for renovations.

Known as the Royal Palace, it was built first as a convent in the 13th century and then transformed into a royal residence in the 14th century. It is a beautiful example of Portuguese Renaissance and was an important building during its period as being the Royal palace, it was here that Gil Vicente and vasco da Gama sought audiences with the King.

It's just a perfect place to spend a relaxing morning or afternoon on a nice spring day. The palace looks exotic and the garden is beautiful. The peafowl add lots of charm to the whole complex.

We were attracted by the gardens and the ancient ruins of an old building and discovered this old palace where unfortunately there is only the ladies section still standing and we could not find it open for viewing. There were a lot of peacocks wandering around which seemed to have taken up residence in the grounds. It is worth a visit to the site. I wish it have been open to view.

AT present it is not open to visitors as it is undergoing extensive renovation and it is fenced off from the public. It is possible to peer inside from the street above and no doubt it will be well worth a visit when the works have been completed.

This building is beautiful from the outside, but when we were there a fence was surrounding it. I don't even know if you can go in when the fence isn't there. It is in the main Evora park, which is worth visiting. The palace deserves a walk around at least.

The Dom Manuel Palace is a great place to see fine Manueline architecture features both in ruins and intact. Exceptional to see many of the elements that make up this style of design that reigned in Portugal during the sixteenth century.
