National Palace of Queluz Tours

National Palace of Queluz
The National Palace of Queluz (Palácio Nacional de Queluz), one of the many royal palaces in the Sintra area, was the summer residence of Dom Pedro III in the 18th century. Nicknamed the Versailles of Portugal, this elegant palace features a multitude of gardens, fountains, and statues as well as many ornately decorated rooms.
 
The Basics
Built in the mid-1700s, the National Palace of Queluz is a beautiful example of rococo, baroque, and neoclassical design, and connects the architecture with the exterior landscapes. Get the benefit of a guide by joining a group or private tour from Lisbon. Most Queluz tours include other Sintra palaces—Quinta da Regaleira, Pena National Palace, and Sintra National Palace—where you can spend the whole day exploring former royal residences and learning about how the Portuguese royal family lived.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The National Palace of Queluz is a must-visit for architecture lovers and royalty aficionados.
  • Avoid crowds with the purchase of a skip-the-line ticket.
  • Be prepared to spend an entire day wandering the palace corridors and the extensive gardens—wear comfortable shoes and sun protection.
  • Visitors with limited mobility can fully access the tours, as they are conducted on the ground floor.

How to Get There
From Lisbon, take the Sintra train line to Queluz-Belas station, then walk about 15 minutes to the palace entrance. If arriving by private transport, take the A37 and exit at Queluz-Palacio.

When to Get There
The National Palace of Queluz is open daily from 9am to 6pm in the winter months and until 7pm in the summer. The palace holds summertime classical music concerts on the grounds.

Get Lost in the Gardens
Explore the extensive French gardens of Queluz Palace and discover a number of hidden gems, including several lakes, fountains, and statues to admire and stroll around. A must-visit is the Canal dos Azulejos, a beautiful area filled with painted scenes of 18th-century life.
Address: Largo Palácio de Queluz, Queluz 2745-191, Portugal
