This palace lovingly cared for by the descendants of an Andalusian aristocratic family, one of whom provided a 40 minute guided tour (offered in 3 languages Spanish, English & French). It is great to hear about the history, and all the Conde de los Andes' who have lived there, and wonderful to see all the beautiful furniture, paintings and artefacts. I had a true sense of this still being a home, not just a 'stately place' to visit - it will exceed your expectations.

We had a personal tour by the owner of the building who is a descendant of the Andalusian aristocracy who were given the building in the 13 century by King Alfonso X It is great when just 2 of you are shown pictures, paintings and furniture dating back to the 14/15 centuries. Very good tour.

Beautiful home of a distinguished noble Spanish family. Our tour in English given by one of the three sons of the family was fascinating. We were not only impressed by the house and its content but also by the historical knowledge of our guide. This is a rare opportunity to glimpse a history and way of life of an illustrious family.

This palace is of special interest for all native Spanish or Portuguese speaking tourists because it belongs to the noble family of the last viceroy of Peru. If you had been to Lima and visited Casa Aliaga you can compare their architecture and furniture. Our guide was the younger brother of the present Count, a grandee of Spain. In one of the rooms I saw a painting which our guide identified as of "Dutch School" and I am almost certain its author is Albert Eckhout, who came to Brazil at the time of the Dutch invasion under the Dutch West India Company and Johann Moritz von Nassau-Siegen. Obviously I can't say weather it is an original or a copy. Combine this visit with the ones to Alcazar and Tio Pepe - González Byass bodega; they are in a walking distance to each other. Palacio de especial interesse para latino americanos já que pertence à família do último vice-rei do Perú. Quem já esteve na Casa Aliaga em Lima pode comparar o estilo arquitetônico e mobílias. O guia foi o irmão mais novo do presente Conde, um nobre com título de "grande da Espanha". Vimos em uma das salas um pintura identificada pelo guia como "da escola holandesa" e tenho quase certeza ser de Albert Eckhout., que veio para o Brasil durante a invasão holandesa; obviamente não sei dizer se é original ou cópia já que não sou expert. Combine a visita ao Palácio com a visita ao Alcazar e a bodega Tio Pepe - González Byass já que são muito perto.

We saw a leaflet for this in the tourist office and thought we’d have a look as it was very near where we were staying. It exceeded our expectations. We were the only 2 visitors and were shown round by a guide, the youngest son in the family, who welcomed us to his home. The property has been in their family for 800 years continually and is still lived in and used by them including furniture on display for example a beautifully set formal table where 5 Spanish kings had dined had last been used by the family 2 weeks ago. There are some beautiful pieces that have been collected and it was made so interesting through having a personal touch, adding family history to what you were viewing
