National Palace of Queluz

Back
Classified as a National Monument in 1910 and a member of the Network of European Royal Residences since 2013, the National Palace of Queluz and its gardens are one of the most outstanding examples of the harmony between landscape and palatial architecture in Portugal, in the 18th and 19th centuries, a period marked by the baroque, rococo and neoclassicism.

Built in 1747 at the orders of the future King Pedro III, the consort of Queen Maria I, it was the Royal Family’s summer residence and their preferred leisure and entertainment place, until their departure for Brazil, in 1807, following the French invasions.

The Portuguese School of Equestrian Art is housed in its gardens.
