Pousada de Dona Maria I, Queluz

Pousada de Dona Maria I, Queluz

The Pousada de Dona Maria I in Queluz is part of the Pousadas de Portugal network. These provide guest accommodation in some of Portugal's most historic buildings.

The building is also known as the "Torre do Relógio" (clock tower) and sits across the cobbled courtyard from the palace at Queluz. Despite it's Baroque appearance the building is the same age as much of the palace, i.e. late 18th century.

Originally this building was built to house the household servants and members of the Royal Guard. After several other uses over the years it became a pousada in 1995.
