Your experience

Description

Travel into the past and immerse yourself in the rich history of this artistic palace and garden. Known as Portugal's answer to Versailles, it was originally designed as a summer residence for the royal family before being converted into a fully-fledged palace by King Pedro III. Skip the lines and discover for yourself the majesty of the 18th century aristocracy!

With the discovery (theft) of Brazilian gold in 1690, the Portuguese royal family felt quite flushed. The National Palace and the gardens of Queluz are a perfect example of the opulence and splendour of that period. The palace and its gardens, described as a "very expensive birthday cake", are an exercise in excess and mix baroque, rococo and neoclassical styles with amazing effect.

As a place of great festivities and celebrations, it was designed as a perfect synthesis of landscape and architecture. When you enter the stately interior, you will understand why - because the star-shaped garden design is reflected throughout the palace.

And if you want to feel your jaw drop even further, take a look at the wonderful "tiled channel". This vast artificial lake is decorated with thousands of glazed tiles depicting scenes of Portuguese legends and victories. Not very subtle, these Portuguese royalty.
