Abour Queluz Mafra and Ericeira

Queluz PalaceThe National Palace of Queluz and its historical gardens are one of the most extraordinary examples of the harmonious connection between landscape and palatial architecture in Portugal. They illustrate the evolution of the taste of the Court in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a period marked by Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassicism. Built in 1747 by the future D. Pedro III, consort of D. Maria I, the Palace of Queluz was initially conceived as a summer residence, becoming a privileged space for leisure and entertainment of the Royal Family, which inhabited it permanently from 1794 until the departure for Brazil, in 1807, following the French invasions.

Mafra - Is famous for its palace-convent, built by King John V in the eighteenth century as a result of a vow that the young king had made if the queen D. Maria Anna of Austria gave him his descendants, the Palace of Mafra is the most significant monument Of the Baroque in Portugal, integrating a Royal Palace, a Basilica, a Franciscan Convent and an important Library, synthesis of the encyclopedic knowledge of the century. XVIII.

Ericeira - Ericeira is a pretty fishing village, very close to Sintra and Mafra. Its center, older and typical, allows the visitor to travel through narrow and winding streets that go back to other times. Its connection to the sea is undeniable, even by the immense ocean that serves as a backdrop to the house. The cliffs that snake along the shores of Ericeira beach also give it a unique beauty

MAFRA

We started the Mafra Palace Tour. It was built by D. João V in the first half of the 19th century. XVIII, as a result of a vote that the young king made if the queen D. Maria Ana of Austria gave him descendants, the Palace of Mafra is the most significant monument of the Baroque in Portugal, integrating a Royal Palace, a Basilica, a Franciscan Convent and an important Library, synthesis of the encyclopedic knowledge of the century. XVIII.

Mafra's greatest treasure is the library, with a collection of more than 40,000 books with gold-bound leather bindings, including a first edition of Luís de Camões's Os Lusíadas. In the reign of D. João VI the Palace was inhabited all year round in 1807, before the departure of the court to Brazil, and it is due to the decorative renovation of some of the most important rooms.


ERICEIRA

ERICEIRA é uma bonita vila piscatória, bem perto de Sintra e Mafra. O seu centro, mais antigo e tipico, permite ao visitante percursos por ruas estreitas e sinuosas que nos remontam a outros tempos. A sua ligação ao mar é inegável, até pelo imenso oceano que serve de pano de fundo ao casario

As Falésias na Ericeira que serpenteiam pelas margens da praia da Ericeira, também lhe dão uma beleza única, tal como os barquinhos dos pescadores que trazem a terra o melhor e mais fresco peixe que se pode provar em muitos dos restaurantes da vila. Os praticantes de surf, não só nacionais como internacionais, procuram na Ericeira as melhores ondas, sendo esta uma referência mundial para os desportistas.
