Lonely Planet review

About 8km southeast of Chandor, in the busy small town of Quepem, stands the Palácio do Deão. This recently renovated 18th-century palace, just opposite the Holy Cross Church, was once the home of the town’s founder himself, and sits on the banks of the small Kushavati River, a tributary of the Pareda River. Plans are afoot to create a cultural centre here, but for now the house and its beautiful, serene gardens make a great place to visit. Call ahead to book a tour or arrange a delicious Portuguese-inspired lunch or afternoon tea on its lovely terrace.
