Overview
More
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.

For those who are used to a splendor of European royal palaces, this place is kind of disappointing... Interior looks like a lack of care and exterior is partially under reconstruction whereas the other part still needs a better care.

The Portuguese royals obviously had all the money in the world a few centuries ago, to build yet another incredibly magnificent palace. This is a remarkable series of buildings, with lovely, formal gardens. It’s easy access from Lisbon makes it a very pleasant and easy...More

Amazing palace modeled on Versailles, and in the process of major restoration and renovation. Interior done with the level of detail you would expect in a palace, with inlaid tile, marble, lead crystal chandeliers, hand worked rugs, some original furniture, paintings and more gold leaf...More

The palace and the garden is perfect for a one hour stay, and gives a good feeling for how the rich people actually lived back then. Most rooms are ready, there was some renovation going on but it did not disturb. The garden is beautiful...More

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