Comenda Palace

Comenda Palace

Designed at the beginning of last century by the renowned Portuguese architect Raul Lino, this manor house is at the mouth of the Comenda Creek, near old Roman ruins on the Arrabida Hills and considered one of the main attractions of the region of Setubal.

The palace used to be owned by the French Armand family and legend has it that the Armand count asked Raul Lino to design the house with a particular request: that he sleeps one night under the moonlight at the location of the future house. The request was accepted and the result is this beautiful palace.

The Armand count and the architect were persons much interested in the preservation of the surrounding fauna and flora and the palace totally respects the natural integration with nature reflecting the balance between the construction and the place.

Away from the hustle and bustle and facing the Troia peninsula, the palace nestles quietly surrounded by the luxuriant vegetation of the Arrabida Hills besides the river Sado.

It has an entrance of the river where you can do kayaking and it also forms a small beach.

Not far there’s a very well-known picnic park.

You truly feel like the cares of the world disappear on this idyllic space.

Out of curiosity, the Armand family were friends of the Kennedy family and upon the  death of the former USA president, his widow Jacqueline Kennedy stayed at the palace with her children.
