We visited Palace of the Marquises to admire the beautiful gardens for an entry fee of 4 euros. Its worthy for visit just be aware that is not very close to the other touristic attractions of Lisbon and has limited working hours.

The place is isolated and not accessible to most people. Best way is go to Sete Rios train station and from there there is bus 770 - Circulacao B Calhau - Serafina. The bus hours is also very limited so it is best to come in the morning!

There is a church after this palace that you can also have a look.
Entrance fee.
Closed on Portugal holidays.
It can be walking distance from the Lisbon Zoo but is a bit tiring. Not recommended if you are with old people or children. You will pass by this bridge to cross the highway and it will lead you to a small and walled neighborhood and then you will see this palace.

There is only one bus that goes to this place and it is not available on Sunday and holidays. Saturday it is upto 1pm only.

It is worth a visit but really, not commuter friendly!

The palace has short opening hours (closes at 13:00 on Saturday) so it is a good idea to phone and check if you can book on a tour for the inside at 11 or 12 only. The inside has magnificent tiled panels showing the war for independence from Spain. We wouldn't usually take a guide but this was worthwhile (gardens,house and guided tour 9Euros). The tour is of the original rooms of the hunting lodge - about 4 hours horse ride from Chiado. The upper terrace and chapel accessed only from the house has tiled panels too dating post-independence.
The gardens have a large pool best viewed from the top of the steps there are many golden carp and 2 black swans. There are beds of iris and bergenia (dormant of course in November). The rose bushes need a good prune or possibly renewal. There is also a modern section to the garden which has lots of bright coloured object, because time was short we could not investigate. The gardens will be much more screened from the suburbs as the trees gain height but there is not much traffic in the location. Probably good to combine with the zoo. See Peacock69 for how to get here, we walked through from other metro exit and needed Google maps, so we found plenty of small places to eat on the way back. (Palace has toilets but no cafe)

Beautiful palace with elaborate gardens. Unfortunately, much of the gardens were closed for renovations. Interior of the palace was well preserved and restored. Period furniture was in great condition. Tiles were really well designed and installed.
