This is a small palace but worth a visit and if you can, attend a concert in the ballroom. Attended a piano concert of Boris Berezovsky.....the right ambiance to benefit from an almost private performance

Interesting palace and attractive gardens. However we were not pleased to be told that you had to visit the palace before the gardens, and once in the gardens you are not allowed back into the palace. Staff were abrupt and unfriendly and didn't know how...More
This palace feels like it was kept exactly as it was left many years ago. There isn’t much else to do In queluz but it is very interesting to see if you like architecture and gardens. Stay at the pousada hotel across the street too!

The gardens further from the palace were not finished yet, still lot of maintenance needs to be done.

Pena palace is definitely worth visiting, both: exterior and interior are very impressive!!! Wouldn’t bother about Queluz, except of outside view, also a major part of the palace was under renovation when we were there in April of 2018. In Quinta Regaleira we mostly liked the magical garden whereas the house itself didn’t impress at all!!!
