Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Sintra Municipality / Queluz / National Palace of Queluz
Admire the extravagant royal collection and gardens of National Palace of Queluz, originally built as a summer residence for the royal family of Portugal. Construction began in 1747 at the request of the future King Pedro III, who would later serve as the consort of Queen Maria I. It became a favorite of Portuguese royalty, who resided here permanently from 1794 until 1807, when they fled to Brazil during the French invasion. Walk inside to view the mix of Baroque, Rococo, and neoclassical styles that reflect the Court's evolving tastes. Browse the opulent collection of paintings, carpets, furniture, ceramics, and porcelains, and then wander through the gardens scattered with statues, fountains, and areas to relax. On certain days there are demonstrations of falconry and traditional 18th century court riding, so check the website for scheduling.

A magnificent historic place. Beautiful and very well preserved palace. I went there for a theater piece I've loved it. It has as also a in place restaurant that I'm willing to go to.
The Palace is very pretty with lots of rooms to see and information to read, both in English and Portuguese. The gardens were pretty, but may only require a quick visit.
