Overview

The National Palace of Queluz is one of the best surviving examples of the neoclassical and rococo architectural styles so reminiscent of late-18th century Portugal. This popular attraction is located between Lisbon and Sintra and is served by excellent road connections making its access easy for people with cars.

Commissioned by King Consort Pedro lll in 1774, the palace was the favoured summer residence of the royal family, until it became a permanent home to them in 1794. They remained here through to their abrupt departure for Brazil in 1807 upon the invasion by the Napoleonic forces.

The National Palace of Queluz boasts grand public spaces, as well as rooms that are more private with direct access to magnificent gardens. Just a walk through the cavernous spaces provides a glimpse into the fabulous life-styles of the monarchs in those times.

Take a stroll along the regal Lions’ staircase – courtesy of French artist Jean-Baptise Robillion – and you arrive at the opulent Tiled Canal. Dwell a while here, for there is much to take with the enormous tiled panels.

The interior of the palace is even more beautiful than its exterior and from the Throne room to the Queen’s chambers the visitor can see everything, including the magnificent Robillion pavilion.

After visiting the Palace one would not be surprised to know that some official receptions occur in here. There is no reason for this Palace not receiving a visit from you.
