Located in the Historic Zone, in one of the most typical and beautiful places in Elvas, and very close to the Cathedral. The Palace consists of a picturesque triangular square with manor houses with coat of arms, and the Church of Nossa Senhora da Consolação. This square is close to the 10th century Arab Gate, it is flanked by two towers and crowned with a gallery. The Mesquita Pimentel Palace was built in the 16th century by Luís de Mesquita Pimentel, a noble knight from the city of Elvas. The Palace housed King Philip II of Spain in 1580 while he lived in Elvas before leaving for Lisbon. Several months earlier, the Palace had been the subject of major works carried out by the royal architect Juan de Herrera, the architect who built the Escorial Monastery. Originally, the Palace was connected to the building located a little further down, to Porta do Sol, forming just one building. Spanish architecture of the late 16th century. Inside the Palace, we find a large patio which is accessed from a portal crowned by the coat of arms of the Mesquita Pimentel. An impressive section of the first Islamic wall crosses the Palace. This fence was built in the 9th century, and includes the old Temple Gate of the wall, with an original horseshoe arch and elbow entrance.Distributed over three floors and with high ornate ceilings, the Palace currently has eight bedrooms, seven rooms, four bathrooms, three libraries/offices, three marble fireplaces, two kitchens, five vaulted barns, stables, wood-burning house, garage, several patios, terraces, balconies and gardens. In the backyard, there is an Arab cistern for irrigation and a large space where a swimming pool could be placed. The Palace also offers beautiful panoramic views of the city of Elvas and its idyllic setting and, being Heritage, it also qualifies for certain tax benefits.
