Palace of Pena: interior visit by time slots only; verify the entrance date and time on your ticket; there is no delay tolerance.
The Chapel, completed in 1752 according to the design by Mateus Vicente de Oliveira, is one of the oldest sections of this Palace. The gilded wood, highly delicate and executed with a perfect technique, was the work of the master carver Silvestre Faria Lobo.
Recourse to that known as “imitation painting” or marbling, simulated through recourse to painted wood or to canvases applied over the wood, conveys an opulence that was very specific to the Baroque and Rococo styles.
The painting on the main altar depicts Our Lady of Conception, the patron of Queluz, and was the work of André Gonçalves.
