Pousada Palácio de Queluz
The quirky, comfortable and delicate rooms will charm you. We offer two suites, one clearly more romantic with a double bed, entry hall and completely equipped bathroom, and one that is more practical where you can place two extra children's beds, with private access to the living room in case you would like to hold a business meeting in absolute privacy.
RESTAURANTS AND SERVICES
During your stay, you will be able to enjoy authentic Portuguese cuisine at the Restaurante Cozinha Velha, serving regional and international dishes, meticulously executed. Let yourself fall for the view of the garden and the Palácio de Queluz's courtyard entrance at this restaurant located where the old Palácio Nacional de Queluz's kitchens once were.
Relax in the common room or the Little Theatre commissioned by Queen Dona Maria I, where you will find the Reading Nook, a place where you can thoroughly enjoy books and guides that other guests leave behind.
Explore and stroll through this Pousada's fascinating gardens and walk the 16 hectares of the Royal Quinta de Queluz. You can leave your vehicle at the free, on-site car park. If you would like to partake in activities and/or excursions, simply inquire at our 24-hour reception.
The Pousada is part of the Palace known as the "Portuguese Versailles" and was the permanent residence of the Royal Family from 1794. Before it was known as the Summer Palace where they frequently came for concerts, equestrian shows and fireworks presentations that were held at the Court to celebrate patron saints, specifically São Pedro, and on the birthdays of the Royals. The Tower building was designed by Master Sargent Manuel Caetano de Sousa and functioned as the chambers of people serving the Palace and as a warehouse.
Property of the Portuguese State since 1908, the Palácio de Queluz currently offers a valuable collection of Portuguese decorative art and furniture to visitors, including Arraiolos carpets, royal portraits, Chinese and European porcelain and gold work from the Royal Collection, presented in period rooms.
