Parques De Sintra Palacio De Queluz Cascata Grande

The Grand Cascade, a typical Rococo structure in its conjugation of art and nature, is covered in sculptured stone and grotesque rocks. The water, arriving from a large upper reservoir, spouts from a monumental figurehead. This feature is common to many gardens of this period, representing the most spectacular section of the entire system of lakes and water features.
