A real labyrinth of parts
The Bahia Palace is a collection of houses and annexes joined together, without any pre-established order. Today, only one part of the palace is open to visitors; another part sometimes welcomes the royal family or foreign dignitaries.
The palace is also open to the public for music concerts on the gigantic 50 x 30 metre courtyard. Art exhibitions are also sometimes organized.
