  The Royal Palace of Queluz
was built by King Peter III between 1747 and 1786. It was inspired by the Palace of Versailles and its architectural style is mainly Rococo. In the 19th century it was the Royal Summer residence and today it is used to house the Presidents and Royalties of foreign countries who visit Portugal. The palace is surrounded by gardens and a park laid out in the manner of Le Notre, with fountains, statues, avenues and a small canal faced with tiles, painted according to the 18th century Portuguese taste. Upon arrival a tour will be made of the Palace, followed by cocktails in the gardens. Classical music will be played during a four-course dinner in the Noble Room also known as the Hall of Mirrors.

Royal Coach Museum
ordered to be constructed by King Joseph I and finished under the reign of King John VI. Here they used to exhibit horseshows of the ancient Portuguese Riding School and it was transformed into the Coach Museum by Queen Amelia in 1905 to house a valuable collection of costumes and coaches of the court. The event here would be to reproduce the feeling of a trip into the past. Two trumpeters will be greeting the group at the entrance of the museum. The guests will then be escorted into the main hall and up to the gallery, where cocktails would be served by waiters dressed in costumes of the period. The guests would be left breathless by the spectacular view of the candle lit tables set up in the midst of the coaches. The four string quartet will be playing as they enter the museum for dinner. During the four-course dinner, a romantic pas-de-deux will be performed throughout the room.
