The Mateus Palace (Portuguese: Palácio de Mateus, Solar de Mateus or Casa de Mateus) is a palace located in the civil parish of Mateus, municipality of Vila Real, Portugal. Architect Nicolau Nasoni was involved in the project for the construction of the palace, which took place in the 18th century.
The Manor House
The palace  is constructed following a rectangular plan open to the west, blocked by a building which demarcates a main courtyard and behind a private quadrangle.
Between the doorway and the courtyard, an ornamental pond, surrounded by trees, serves as a mirror.
The courtyard, opened like a U, is closed off by a balustrade.
Between the wings, the courtyard is closed by a transversing decorated structure of an emblazoned pediment, encircled by two statue guards in baroque style.
