Overview

Royal residence of two generations of monarchs, only fifteen minutes away from Lisbon, the National Palace of Queluz is intimately linked with significant figures in Portuguese history. Today it constitutes a major heritage site in Portuguese architecture and landscaping, and contains an important collection which reflects royal taste during the eighteenth and nineteenth century - from Baroque, through Rococo, to Neoclassicism.

The Palace is huge and there is clearly a large effort in restoration of both house and gardens. Very little information is available about history or lifestyle. I will return, but with a guide.

There's construction everywhere. No English translation on Museum label. No museum English speaking curator available.

We have seen so many palaces all over the world. This site does not disappoint. Lots of history speaks to you. We had a guide show us around. Quite much to take in at one time. Some restoration is going on. Go ahead and enjoy.

I think 2 hours is about right, that's about the amount of time we took to see both the Palace and the gardens.

P.S. I think you will find storing luggage anywhere in Europe is difficult because of the threat of bombs!
