Owner description: 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.

“Superb gardens”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This palace also called the Versailles of Portugal deserves more visitors ! The buildings but also the garden and horse stables are very interesting.
To get from Lisboa to Queluz take the train in the Rossio station direction Sintra and get of in Queluz-Belas, after a 15 minustes walk you arrive at the palace.

The palace looks a little jaded at first but the interiors are interesting and the gardens a delight.

“A must see”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Loved this, especially as my mad English friend who has lived here all her life informed the guides of all the historical facts that they didn't know. (They must have loved that!!)
Well worth a visit.
