Very informative did 30 min guided tour which covered essentials. Wine tasting interesting comparing to Niagara on the Lake where we live. Grounds and gardens beautiful amazing historical site and info.
Beautiful place with amazing gardens. Poor customer service! I don't think the tour is worth the price plus it's only in Portuguese. It's a 15 minutes walk in the gardens that makes this place worth the visit
