Parques De Sintra Palacio De Queluz Lago Medalhas

This is the largest lake in the Gardens of Queluz. It takes a starred octagonal shape with small basins in the form of medallions in each of the angles. This represents another Robillion design who included in it a complicated system of spouts. The lake recalls an enormous silver salver placed onto the ground.
