Discover the ruins of the palace that was once home to the powerful Cabral family, which is located in the very center of Portugal. This magnificent palace was constructed in the early 1800s and served as a symbol of the family’s tremendous wealth and influence, which was obtained through government positions as well as old money that was inherited.
