Sobre Queluz Palace

The Palace of Queluz and its gardens, represents one of the finest examples of late 18th-century Portuguese architecture. Built at the orders of Pedro III, the husband of D. Maria I (1734-1816), and used as a royal residence, this palace is one of the finest examples of Portuguese architecture in the late 18C. It has been further enriched by an important museum of decorative art, whose collections mostly belonged to the royal family and are exhibited in an appropriate setting. Many of the rooms are decorated in the rocaille style, such as the superb Throne Room, its walls lined with mirrors and magnificent carved gilded woodwork. The surrounding gardens are embellished with fountains and ornamental ponds, where sparkling water spouts forth from mythological figures. Particularly impressive is the group of sculptures around the Neptune Basin.

"From a timely pickup at our hotel front door and until drop off, it was a magnificent day with our guide Feliciano. He made this a safe, fun and very interesting experience. We had flexibility in planning our day and enjoyed the entire time. The no rushing and yet we saw so much in one full day. The tone and pace made it apparent that this was not a routine nor ritual for our guide. Feliciano was enjoying himself so much that it made it great for us !!! Thanks again. "

"Our tour guide was very informative and very flexible. We were able to see lots of historically significant landmarks in Sintra while also being able to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery. Our guide was flexible and gave us several choices as to what we wanted to see and when. I would definitely recommend this tour!"
★★★★★
"Excellent in every respect. We were asked our preferences and Feliciano took our responses and the weather into consideration. The best part was the off-road component as we drove through low wispy clouds in the forest. We loved the personal approach, and it’s our favourite aspect of a four week holiday. "
