The gardens are almost as beautiful as the palace. They are classic French style with labyrinths and lots of fountains on a Neptune theme. Great photo opportunity with the palace in the background. There is also a tile-lined basin with a little creek running through it. Some lovely trees and shrubs.

The day we visited the palace the rain was really bucketing down, so we didn't get to leisurely walk the beautiful gardens ... but we could see them from various vantage points throughout our tour of the palace and could see that they wee exquisitely maintained and would have been well worth a visit if it hadn't been raining so hard.

The palace is midway between Lisbon and Sintra,takes about 15minutes to walk from the station. Some stunning rooms especially the throne room and I particularly liked walking around the gardens. Plenty of fountains and sculptures

The interior of the palace is covered in a separate Tripadvisor review. This is about the formal garden outside the palace. A unique and unusual sight here is the Tiled Ceramic Canal, where the walls of the shallow canal are covered with azuelejos tiles depicting scenes from the 18th century. The formal garden next to the palace is lined with numerous statues and dominated by a fountain with mythical figures in the center. Best of all, as this place is a hidden gem, there are few visitors to get in the way of your pictures. It is well worth visiting before the rest of the world finds out.

This is a must stop. The palace has so much French influence. It is hard to believe it was intended only as a summer residence. The palace and extensive grounds are beautiful.

This palace is amazing, & still used by the government for some functions. It's just beautiful, with perfect grounds and large numbers of gorgeous tiles (including a tiled canal!). Not many people venture to it, but it's worth the trip!

The immaculate gardens with plants and sculptures were half of the attraction here. Spend some time walking the gardens after touring the interior of the palace.

Queluz National Palace in Queluz, near Sintra began as a summer retreat but became the official residence for the royal family after their palace in Madrid was destroyed by fire in 1794. It remained so until the royal family fled to Brazil (fleeing from Napoleon) in 1807. This palace had significant historical interest to us because we had visited the Royal palace in Petropolis Brazil in 2020 and it was fascinating to see how things connected.
We also enjoyed the magnificent gardens at Queluz Palace, although we only had time for a very quick walk-through of these gardens after our tour of the palace.
The palace was not crowded and photos were allowed. These things made for a very pleasant tour.

We were not thrilled by the Palaces in Sintra but this one was really nice. The mirrors needed some love but the rooms themselves were beautiful and the gardens were a joy.

This Palacio was definitely worth a visit and we would highly recommend it. If you have impaired mobility please be aware there are lots of steps. The member of our party who has mobility restrictions was asked what percentage of a disability did they have?! This is an embarrassing question to be asked.
