Visiting Queluz Palace in Lisbon

I had my own private Lisbon tour guide, fellow Scot Mary Goudie, for my visit to Queluz Palace in Lisbon. The 18th century Rococo style palace was built as a summer home for Dom Pedro of Braganza. The palace was paid for by gold from Brazil. Queluz Palace is open from 9am to 5pm, but closed on Tuesdays and public holidays. The entrance fee is 7 Euro for the Palace and Gardens or 3 Euro for the Gardens only.
