National Palace of Queluz history

The National Palace of Queluz and its gardens are, in Portugal, one of the most beautiful examples of the style of construction used by the nobility in the 18th and 19th centuries. These were centuries in which the architectural styles were Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassicism.

Ordered to be built in 1747 by the future D. Pedro III, king consort of D. Maria 1 (mother of Dom Pedro and Dom Miguel), the Palace of Queluz was built to be the summer residence of the Royal Family, which inhabited it from 1794 until the departure for Brazil, in 1807, following Napoleon’s invasions of Portugal.
The Palace still has several pieces of furniture used by royalty throughout the ages. The room where Dom Pedro 4 was born and died is almost as it was then.
A stroll through the gardens is rejuvenating. The water channel, where Queen Carlota Joaquina, took the princes, Pedro and Miguel, for a walk in a small boat. The tiles, the shapes of the flowerbeds, the stones, everything heightens our senses.
