After undergoing restoration in 2005, one of the wealthiest mansions in the city was furnished with an impressive cultural centre. The modern wing features two auditoriums, one capable of accommodating up to 800 attendees and the other up to 200, where classical, as well as rock music performances, talks, and conferences are held.

There is also a futuristic exhibition area that is utilized for temporary art exhibitions.

Additionally, visitors can admire the palace’s 18th-century baroque architecture, take a stroll through the tiered boxwood gardens, and marvel at the stunning panoramic view of the castle and old town from the balustrade.

The Jardins do Palaci de Vila Flor are a stunning example of the fruitful mix between human creativity and natural beauty. The gardens provide a welcoming retreat and a relaxation spot from which to take in the magnificence of Guimaraes city.
