The National Palace of Queluz is one of the leading examples of the rococo and neoclassical architectural styles from the second half of the eighteenth century in Portugal.
The residence was initially designed as a summer house and thus a favoured place for the royal family's leisure and entertainment but which became their permanent home from 1794.

Paulo was great. On time pick up at the hotel to start the day. His descriptions & history of Queluz & Mafra were top notch. Everyone goes to Sintra but Queluz & Mafra are somewhat off the radar which makes the visit more enjoyable. These are two sites you should visit. The rest of the day was quite pleasant as well as we visited the sea shore in various areas. Book this tour with Paulo.
