Pousada Queluz is very near the big city, but the nights are still calm and peaceful like any small village in the countryside. The name "Que Luz" (meaning "What light!") is descriptive of the special light that fills the days in this special location, and is probably what inspired D. Pedro III to build his palace here.

Queluz is located at 14 Km from Sintra and at 12 Km from Lisbon on the banks of the Tejo river. The 18th century rococo style palace here has been called the "little Versailles". It has three wonderful gardens; Pensil, Neptuno, and Azereiros), landscaped in the French manner.

Of interest to many visitors are the megalithic monuments (about 2500 BC) nearby, and several structures from the centuries 14th, 17th and 18th centuries that can be found by wandering through the streets of the city.

The pink and white, baroque styled Pousada Queluz is set in the building formerly used by the Royal Guard of the Court in the Palace of Queluz. The Dona Maria I (its official name) offers the usual Pousada warm welcome, and a very pleasant ambience. The guest rooms are decorated in a traditional style, and  - of course - have all the modern amenities.
