Fodor's Expert Review Palácio dos Duques de Cadaval

Évora Castle/Palace

The palace is readily identified by two massive stone towers with pointed battlements. These towers, once part of a medieval castle that protected the town, were later incorporated into this former residence of kings João I and João IV. Today it belongs to the Duke of Cadaval family. Many rooms are open to the public and welcome regular temporary exhibits. Since 2022, the ground floor is also home to a contemporary Portuguese restaurant called Cavalariça, an offshoot of a popular dining spot in Comporta.
