XVII a summer palace in the Rococo style. The main body of the Palace, built until 1758, it was concluded after the marriage of D. Peter D. with Maria Francisca, future Queen Mary I (1760). By this time, ennobled the wealthy saloons, as well as beautiful gardens with all kinds of baroque fountains, tiles and statues. Jean Baptiste Robillion the French master was responsible for the magnificent Robillion Pavilion, the gardens and the renovation of the Music Room.
    Often compared to the Palace of Versailles, this monument - in addition to the pavilion built by Robillion which holds clear European influences - is very Portuguese, both in scale as the artistic spirit.
    Today, this palace is used as a residence by the Portuguese Government and Heads of State visit to Portugal, as well as for special meetings. It is also open to all who wish to visit, so make sure to sample one of many delicious dishes served at the Old Kitchen restaurant, situated in a wing of the palace, and not miss the incredible exhibition of decorative arts from the royal collections .
