National Palace and Gardens of Queluz

Royal residence of two generations of monarchs, just outside Lisbon, the National Palace of Queluz is intimately tied to significant figures in Portuguese history.

Today the palace and gardens are a major heritage site in Portuguese architecture and landscaping, with an important collection, reflecting royal taste in the 18th and 19th century—from Baroque, through Rococo, to Neoclassicism.

The sobriety of the palace's exterior facades contrasts with the elaborate inward-facing facades, which are prolonged by delicate parterres of boxwood framed by sixteen hectares of gardens. The gardens are extended along main axes animated by water fountains and punctuated with statues inspired by classical mythology.

The interiors comprise large state rooms, such as the Throne Room, the Music Room and the Ambassadors Room, the royal apartments and the chapel whose gilded carving in the rococo style was to become an important reference in the Lisbon region.
