Mateus Palace...

The Mateus Palace in Vila Real, in the North of Portugal, dates from the beginning of the XVIII and was built by António José Alvares Botelho Mourão.
The palace is today known as one of the most beautiful and magnificent baroque style palaces in Portugal.
In 1911, the palace has been classified as a National Monument and its architecture is attributed to Nicolau Nazoni, the well-known author of many other monuments in the North of Portugal.
Take some time, this Easter, to visit the palace and its fabulous gardens as well as the surroundings, in Vila Real.

I have studied in Vila Real for 5 years but I only had the chance to visit the palace later, after my graduation. It is very beautiful but the most interesting about Mateus palace is the famous wine (Mateus Rosé) and the compote. It's a tradition that has been passed across generations!
