Fodor's Review

Although it's not open to the public, the 16th-century Palácio de Tavora (Tavora Palace), on the central Praça da República, has an interesting history. In the 18th century, the Marquês de Pombal accused the Duke of Aveiro, who owned the palace, of collaborating in the assassination plot against the king, Dom José. Subsequently the duke was executed by the marquês, and the Tavora coat of arms was erased from the Sala das Armas in Sintra's National Palace.
