Private family chapel
Mateus Palace Museum. The tour includes a visit to the private family chapel, which is annexed and connected to the palace by the rear. It is currently closed to the public and to worship, except on Easter Sunday as it is the feast of the patron. Therefore the only way to see inside is by paying for this joint tour which cost just €7.50. Like the palace, it's of baroque style, but it was completed a few years later than the house and it was designed by José Álvares Rego. On the main façade you can see the large window above the door, the shields of the family, and the great curved pediment supported on four columns (two on each side of the door).
