National Palace of Queluz history

The National Palace of Queluz and its historical gardens are one of the most remarkable examples of the harmonious link between landscape and palatial architecture in Portugal. They illustrate the evolution of the Court’s tastes in the 18th and 19th centuries, a period that was 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, the Palace of Queluz was initially conceived as a summer residence, becoming the royal family’s preferred place for their leisure and entertainment. They lived there permanently from 1794 until their departure for Brazil in 1807, as a result of the French invasions.

Pousada of Queluz history

A historic Hotel, the Pousada Palácio de Queluz, also called Pousada Dona Maria I, is located in the Clock Tower building, next to Queluz National Palace. The town of Queluz is close to the beaches of Cascais, the Sintra mountain range, the golf courses and 14 km from Lisbon.
In the second half of the 18th century, one of the last phases of the Royal Palace of Queluz, during the reign of D. Maria I, was built, in front of the palace, but being part of the same architectural complex, the clock tower as well as the annex building for the royal guard, the administration house and the stables.
The layout of the construction is attributed to Manuel Caetano de Sousa, considered by many like the last representative of the baroque national delay, that happened to the architects of the palace, Mateus Vicente and Jean Baptiste Robillion.
Attached to the clock tower, which has three plans and two registers, the first with a clock and the second with the bells topped by a bulbous dome, a building is developed in whose main façade there are windows and doors of cut pediment.
In the 1990s, the construction of the Pousada was carried out, and the original façade was completely retained and the interior was deeply reformulated to meet the new needs. The Pousada was inaugurated in 1995.
